I just started using Bucket Explorer after using S3 Firefox for a while, and the difference is impressive. 30 MB files used to take 40 minutes to upload, and fail half the time; now they take 10 minutes with no problems. Thank you for an excellent program. - BucketExplorer Forum
Bucket Explorer is the best of all the “front ends” for S3 in my humble opinion. I came to the product late after trying about 5 others. The user interface is clean and navigation is a snap. What I don’t know is why this solution is not included with external drives, i.e. Seagate, Western Digital, etc. as the preferred backup solution. Keep up the good work. - Paul Palmer
I’ve tried several different Amazon S3 file managers and had settled on the free S3 Firefox Organizer. But then I tried Bucket Explorer. Not only did it do everything I needed it to do, it introduced to me new features I didn’t know Amazon S3 supported. If you’re like me, you love free and open source software. Bucket Explorer, once out of beta, will be a commercial program. I’m not sure what the final price will be, but assuming it costs less than $40, it is a program worth purchasing.- carltonbale.com
I have been using S3 for close to a year now to host my media files online and I used a combination of 3-4 tools to get the job done. You guys have done a great job with Bucket Explorer. I see all the features that I wanted (so far:).- BucketExplorer Forum
I’ve been playing with Bucket Explorer today and like it as a bucket management tool, and also as a way to share files with friends/family via the signed URL method.- BucketExplorer Forum
These guys have a GREAT! product here. I just wish they keep going forward with it and don’t stop development as I have seen with many software products. I have been using S3Fox for a while and Bucket Explorer looks like a copy cat of S3Fox in many aspects.- Amazon Developer Connection
