The main download page offers a download for Windows only; this particular version includes a bundled offer, aka adware. Text on the page highlights this: "This installer may include bundled offers. Check below for more options".
If you download the client anyway using that option, you may get a Windows Defender warning about potentially unwanted software. The threat "App:FileZilla_BundleInstaller" is listed with a low severity rating when the file has been scanned by Defender.
