    What's your favorite FTP software? I've been using SmartFTP for a long while and am happy with it but they have decided to eliminate the free version. I only have 2 weeks left to go.

    I google searched this and found there were SO MANY ftp programs out there that I didn't know which one to choose. So, I have come to you guys for your opinions.

    In my opinion, FileZilla is the best open source FTP program. I also have used CuteFTP for many years. While CuteFTP it isn't free, I have become accustomed to the layout. I have included links for both.

    Code:
     [B]FileZilla[/B]
    
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=21558

    Code:
     [B]CuteFTP[/B]

    +1 for FileZilla; there's simply nothing better out there, and because it's open source it will ALWAYS be free.

    I'm using fireftp. It works great and it works within firefox browser as an add on. I did try filezilla and others but in the end i chose fireftp. Probably because of it is easy to use.

    Filezilla is the easiest to use ftp software out there and it works great.

    FireFTP, easy to use and it is easy to force the binary passive uploads when needed. In my experience auto mode just isn't good enough sometimes.

    I love Alzip at altools dot net, they've got many different products, which are all free for personal use.
    Alzip is very easy to use.

    That's why I took the liberty of including the r4p1dsh4r3 download link for the unlocked professional version. :p
