 Network Filezilla - upload and download files via ftp
I use Filezilla as my ftp client several times a week. Over the years I've tried many ftp clients and I can't say anything bad about any of them. They all did the job I needed at the time. Filezilla is the one I finally ended up staying with because it's easy for me to use and does everything I need to support my web sites. I like the dual pane format and it's so easy to just drag and drop files back and forth between the web and my PC. It keeps track of all my ftp logins and passwords so I don't have to. Best of all, it's an open source project that's been around a long time and I feel I can depend on it's continued support and improvement at no cost.
