Personally I use SmartFTP, I have a corporate license as I use it for business purposes; it's certainly my favourite FTP client, I've tried FileZilla and WSFTP and many years ago BulletProof FTP and each time I kept uninstalling them after a short period in favour of SmartFTP.
What do you use?

I use SmartFTP (uh, it's been telling me to buy a license for a while now, even though it's still usable? *shrug* I am far too poor, I fear!), but it's only in light of there not being an alternative I like better. I don't really trust it with uploading a lot of files for some reason, so upgrading scripts is a nightmare...

I usually have 2 or 3 IP.Board upgrade files uploading at once via SmartFTP, tends to go OK unless my ISP decides it's time for the internet to be turned off.
Technically speaking if you're using SmartFTP for personal or education or non-profit use you don't have to purchase a license. I however use it on my personal forums/websites and for my web hosting business so I purchased a license. They don't force you, it's more a moral decision :lol:

Ive always used SmartFtp. But the latest version of FileZilla is very nice, a lot better than it used to be. Ive also used Fireftp. Just because Ive used smartftp I like the way it works and will probably never get used to something else.
And indeed the only problem with it is that darn box that pops up when I load it telling my to upgrade to 2.5 or whatever XD.

I used WSFTP years and years ago (I think I was 14!) and loved it. I assume I'd use it again if I still needed it, but I've never liked change a lot, which is one reason I don't use it anymore... because well. It's technology. It never really stops changing, does it?

I don't need much, so I just use filezilla. It works for what I need it to do and I don't need anything fancier.

When I was building a board on IPB and a Photoshop's web I was using FTP Surfer (it was recomended by my dad because he know to make programs, I don't know how to make programs yet, but I'll know muahahaha) and Smart FTP. I used FileZilla too but I did not know how to use it lol.

I love Filezilla's simplicity Possibly on more of a large scale need SmartFTP takes it.

I use Filezilla. It's just really simple and I don't need it for more than uploading photos, althought later I may advance to more stuff.

WinSCP is an open source SFTP and FTP client for Windows. It works well and integrates with Putty which allows you to open an SSH Terminal from the current session with a click of a button. It's also a little more secure then most FTP programs since it can connect using SSH.

I have worst experience with FileZillia so I upgrade it with SmartFTP and currently having not a single problem. This is a Windows based application and makes transferring of files between your system and your website easily. This application is simple to learn, easy to use. It makes use of a Windows / Internet Explorer-like interface.

Worth noting SmartFTP is no longer free of charge, though it is reasonably priced for a license.

Cyberduck for any Mac users is well worth a look, CuteFTP if you've got the cash - other wise Cyberduck; fantastic bit of software.
