It seems fast for me and the interface is great, very flexible.
However I miss 2 features that is important to me, that Ican't live without them:
1) Better shell integration (Explorer context menu): it'd be nice to have all Quick Connect addresses listed in context menu even if SmartFTP is closed. If SmartFTP is not started (or started but without any FTP tab) it seems too much work to use shell integration.
2) Easy way to synchronize remote to local folder: another feature I was hoping to use is folder synchronization; I had to print article 0190 in order to try the suggested method (I don't remember last time I had to do that in order to understand an application feature) and I'm still trying to make it right! If you keep the Favorite approach for that at least SmartFTP could have a job item or something making Synchronization an one step: once the favorite item is started then connect and start synching. Right now I have to make several favorite editions, then start the favorite item, then connect it, then look for a button or command to "download".
Before trying SmartFTP I was just hoping to find a "Synchronization" button that would guide me to the process and even save the job (as another Favorite item) for later use. It's just a simple interface approach that would lead to what you have to do in an advanced and complicated way (no ofense here in any way).
In resume, folder synchronization is a hidden SmartFTP feature, it's not clear how to set and after set it's not clear how to properly run.
I really, really hope my two requests/suggestions are not too complicated to implement.
