Mac sftp

Right. This is a 'do my homework' question - apologies all.

I'm really clueless about Macs. A client of $JOB appears to
work from a Mac (as based on his mail agent being Microsoft
Entourage), and is not incredibly technical. He should access
an sftp server (ftp/ssh2). I would point him toward Filezilla,
or possibly Core-FTP Lite if it were Windows.

A quick Google shows several options, none of which I can assess.
Rbrowser and Fugu - free and shiny.
Fetch - free for educational use, which applies here.
Transmit - shiny but not Free.
MacSFTP - development appears to have stopped. Also, commercial.

Any preferences? Thoughts? Amusing duck stories? Thanks!

(Don't know which version of OS X he's using. His Entourage is
10.1.4, fwiw)
