    I've actually use a couple FTP clients, and I have to say Filezilla was the best. It was easy to manage all of the FTP servers and it was fairly fast. I don't think I would really need anything better than FileZilla.

    I used to use CoreFTP, but then it had font errors a few months later.

    Then, I switched to FileZilla and it had more features.

    It appears that Filezilla is the best, it's winning :). It currently has 93.33% of the votes. :D

    I would have to say that FileZilla is my favourite. I can recall using SmartFTP back when it was freeware, and it certainly wasn't as easy or useful as FileZilla has been for me. For instance, with FileZilla it's easy to manage the files on the server, no messing around with some lame web-based frontend :)

    The only problem I had with core was moving my settings between Vista laptops. Didn't seem to matter where I put the files, but I'm not sure I had it right to begin with. I use the hell out of ftp.

    I like Filezilla because it's free and good.

    I support FileZilla all the way 'til the end.
    Why? simply because it's free, excellent (better than some commercial product), fast, updated regularly and because it has an extensive user base.

    I enjoy using the built in FTP client in Nautilus (on Ubuntu). It lets me mount my FTP folder as if a standard network share - so I can edit files directly on the server, saving time downloading + uploading.

    Of course, I won't have a new backup, and if the server goes down when im writing to it..., and read/write times seem a little slow, but it is damn convenient!

    I voted FileZilla, but I used to use FireFTP. It's an add-on for Firefox that opens up as a tab in the browser, but is just like any other FTP client. The layout is very similar to FileZilla, although there's some features of FireFTP that I like better than FileZilla.

    Its been a while since I have used a standalone FTP client - but I think either cuteFTP or fillezilla is the better of the group.

    I use D3lphin, (one of the two KDE file browsers). The main reason is that it integrates perfectly with the rest of my desktop, i.e. the ftp folder is simply another folder that I have open, making work easy. I have however used both gFtp and fireFTP (a firefox plugin) before.

    Filezilla is my vote, I've used cuteftp, leechftp, 3dftp, smartftp...etc and filezilla has done me just fine so I stopped and have not gone back to the others

    I usually use filezilla, but sometimes i try different ones just to get a new feel or look, and none of them are as good as filezilla, its the best at getting the job done.

    I haven't used many FTP clients in my time, but I really liked filezilla.

    At the moment I'm using the built in one in Fedora.
