Filezilla 3.60.1 not available for snap or apt

Filezilla 3.60.1 is the latest (currently July,2022) version and is available for Windows from their website. I do not see any apt or snap repositories for it.
The Linux (debian) version seems to only come in a zip file, that unzips into 3 folders- bin, lib and share.

How can we use these folders to install Filezilla on Ubuntu?

This is the way I would do it.

curl -fsSLo filezilla.tar.bz2
tar -xjf filezilla.tar.bz2
sudo mv filezilla/ /usr/bin/filezilla
sudo nano /etc/bash.bashrc
# Add the following line to the file.
export PATH="${PATH}:/usr/bin/filezilla/bin"
# Press CTRL+X
# Press Y
source /etc/bash.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc
rm filezilla.tar.bz2
# Use Filezilla

Think about whether you really need to have the latest version.
The version that installs as a package in Ubuntu is probably quite adequate, and it is more likely to be compatable with the rest of your system

Sooner or later I’ll get around to doing the above. Unless someone creates a snap or apt out of it first!
But I took the lazy man’s solution:
I just copied the unzipped 3.60.1 folders into my home directory and invoked the filezilla-dot-bin from there.
So far it seems to work OK. But I still have not czeched to see if it fixes my problem yet.
