Why .... why .... why ....

Why do all developers of dual-pane applications hate us so much ?

Panic Transmit :
refuses to let you work just locally in dual-pane mode

Binary Nights Forklift:
was started to have it all - but fails ... fails .... fails .... and rips of users with incompatible versions for each OS upgradede ..... and now seems to have just taken the money and run ....

Cocoatech Pathfinder:
NO FTP ...... why ? ..... you could have all the users from both Forklift and Transmit .... but no .....

Why does NO-ONE .... give us a full-featured dual-pane file-browser with FTP/SFTP/FXP support ?!?!?!

Why does everyone just do half the job ????

    I'm using Transmit 3 and I have dual pane mode - (2 windows open next to each other if that's what you mean?)

    what do you mean by "work just locally"?

    Transmit just fails with local and remote file functions - its a copying machine - nothing more.

    Gentlemen, please cast your suggestion votes at the right place since suggestions made here are skipped by the men in charge.
    BTW Alan, the first application in your list should be Finder. If OS X provided FTP upload by default, it would be easier for developers. Also, like you correctly mention, FTP implementation is a huge task and it's definitely more than a copying machine.
