FileZilla Homepage: I may be a little late to this party, but it’s worth mentioning that FileZilla is a great little FTP client.
I’ve used WS_FTP for years — since version 3 or something. On two occasions, I’ve discussed the insane bloat that WS_FTP is going through. They’re on version 9 and they’re really struggling to find new features to add.
FileZilla is the anti-WS_FTP. It doesn’t do much, and that’s its strength. It has a simple interface, and it transfers files reliably. It’s tough to ask for more than that.
