Buttercup 1.18.1

Open Source

Password managers are becoming a dime a dozen lately with tools such as 1Password, LastPass, KeePass and lesser known managers such as Dashlane. So, the question is: do we have room for one more password manager? And can you trust a new upstart developed by the community?

Whilst there are many commercial password managers, not everyone can afford or justify a subscription service and look towards the freeware model. This is what Buttercup aims to solve, by offering a free solution which synchronises your data across every platform, enabling you to merge current databases across Windows, Mac and Linux. This means you enter your password once and it's available immediately on your Windows desktop or Mac laptop. There are web browser plugins for Firefox and Chrome, which will enable you to automatically drop in the relevant username/password (from the Buttercup database) when you're attempting to login to a web account.

Synchronisation is handled by the cloud and Buttercup currently supports Dropbox, owncloud, Nextcloud and any other service which uses WebDAV to synchronise data.

Buttercup is super-easy to use and features a very minimal user interface. When you first start the application, it will ask you to import an existing database from other password managers. After this, you can easily create new entries to add your favourite website login information and other important personal data.

The application also enables you to easily group all your entries so you can easier manage all your passwords, so, for instance, you can have one group for all your banking/financial information and another group for your social media information and another for your online shopping, and more.

All your data is stored within Buttercup using the latest AES 256bit CBC mode with a SHA256 HMAC encryption, meaning your information is safe from prying eyes.

Open Source

The web is so ubiquitous these days that many people think that it’s the internet as opposed to an – admittedly – ever-increasing part of it. There’s email, usenet (for newsgroups) and FTP. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and is used for the storage and transfer of files over the internet. Although largely eclipsed by the web – and it’s possible to access online storage through your web browser – FTP remains a valuable resource for those whose business involves transferring large numbers of files over the internet and who find email or the web unable to handle their needs.

As a consequence, FTP clients like Filezilla still prove popular, and now there’s a client on the scene that could potentially redefine the landscape. Cyberduck is already well known to Mac users, but has now been ported across to Windows, and offers far more than just a simple FTP client: it also supports FTP/TFL, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Docs, Google Storage, Windows Azure, and Rackspace Cloud Files.

Once installed, the program will detect any FTP accounts in other clients (including Filezilla) and import them across – you’ll then see a list of all connections as a series of drive icons: click one to connect or set up a new connection manually. An Explorer-like view of your remote location will open, enabling you to browse your files. Downloading and uploading can be done via the supplied controls, but we had problems getting the program to upload anything using the upload button. Thankfully, Cyberduck supports full drag-and-drop from other folder windows, and this worked with no problems.

The program is open source, but you will be prompted to make a donation each time a new version is released. It’s still early days for this Windows version, but the signs are that this could be a serious player in the FTP client market.

Cyberduck 7.2.1 include (see changelog for more):

- Failure to open application on Windows 7+ (Windows)
