What FTP Client do you prefer and why?

Posted

I enjoyed using FireFTP. However, the add-on no longer works in FireFox and can't be converted to an extension (no sockets).

So I tried using three free alternative FTP clients: WinSCP, FileZilla, and Cyberduck. Of the three, I prefer WinSCP because of it's simplicity and similarities to FireFTP.

Thanks for the feedback. After trying all three free FTP Clients (WinSCP, Filezilla, and Cyberduck), my first choice is WinSCP because of its' simplicity and similarities to FireFTP. The other two have lots of extras which I don't need, and thus make them more complicated for me to use.
