    Smart FTP

    It does bug you with an advert every now and again when you start it up, but one quick click and it's gone.

    Another recommendation for FileZilla.. Been using it for ages now and has never let me down. Also supports SFTP.

    smartftp and filezilla here too.

    filezilla just feels more lightweight and faster, although i'm sure it's probably not. smartftp has great queue system for transfers.

    Pfft... GUI losers. FTP from the command line, none of this namby-pamby drag-and-drop, click-click stuff.

    Well, there always has to be one of these posts in such a thread. Yeah, Filezilla's excellent for Windows, gFTP for Linux.
