    I like Filezilla. I have been using it for awhile and I have never had any issues with it.

    Filezilla or CoreFTP

    I prefer Filezilla (using it on Ubuntu, but there is a Windows & Apple version too)

    Tried most of 'em, liked SmartFTP the most.

    Edit: FileZilla is free @ everyone who's suggesting it...

    Why do you want a paid ftp client when there's a bunch of free ones?

    If you want free then WinSCP is worth a look, especially if you use SSH as it nicely links to PuTTY (also free).

    I did use FileZilla but dumped it after the revelations in this thread that it stores userids and passwords in plain text.

    Use to use CuteFTP, loved the built in editor(back when I used phpBB editing / saving in CuteFTP was a breeze.

    Now FileZilla, it gets the job done, and it's free.

    Indeed and I never did store passwords anyway. However I still prefer to use more secure software plus the integration with PuTTY makes WinSCP a better option.

    You do know that PuTTY is in the background of FileZilla, right? I see it referenced in the patch notes lately.

    Yes it uses PuTTY tools for SFTP but it doesn't give you the PuTTY command line.

    So miss this one on my Mac. Both Cyberduck and FileZilla suck big time.
