I like SmartFTP better than most FTP softwares I tried so far, but there are two things that stop me from using it.
1. The focus handling is very poorly implemented. I would expect to be able to wheel-scroll only on hover over a specific listing/tree, there is no such feature. Even worse, clicking on a scrollbar doesn't move the focus to the listing, in fact I have to click Inside the box to move the focus. In the tree this effectively changes the active directory, and in the file listing this has other adverse effects I don't want to experience. Having to deal with these deffects everytime I need to scroll a listing is nothing but extremely embarrassing.
2. The file listing for local folders has no Bytes option for Size column! How is this possible in the first place, for an FTP program?! FileZilla has it, most other have this critical feature. It seems the program uses the underlying Explorer for local folders which is less than desirable, to say it politely. It would be Ok if there was a "Bytes" option for local views file sizes.
3. Option to remove the middle toolbar that transfers files etc. It wastes toooo much space, most people I know use keyboard shorcuts for these actions, and this toolbar wastes valuable space that could be used to see more of my valuable information - files and folders.
