Quick Tip: Top 5 Awesome Features in Transmit 4

The ever-amazing Mac software company Panic released the fourth version of their incredible FTP client Transmit last week. What’s packed into this version? Well, according to the release notes, “Everything is new!”

5. Brand New Interface

The biggest changes in Transmit 4 are in the interface; you almost don’t recognize it as the same software!

4. Super User-Friendly

A lot of Transmit 4’s awesomeness is in its incredibly ease-of-use. For example, when viewing a folder (both local and remote) you’ve got a “bread-crumb” trail to make navigating between folders a breeze. Then, the sync panel now gives you a nice tooltip, making it easier to see exactly what will happen.

3. Rules

The preferences panel in Transmit 4 now includes a rules panel; this makes it really easy to skip certain files, like source control files.

2. Local to Local / Server to Server

With Transmit 4, either panel can be either a server or a local folder, making it super-simple to transfer files between folders.

1. Mounting Disks

The “one more thing” about Transmit 4 is that you mount servers as disks, just like you’d mount a local hard drive.
