about Free FTP Jun 2011

My new favorite that has replaced Filezilla. I no longer have to deal with large uploads being disrupted, corrupted, and/or dropped. It still a similar interface layout in that the local and remote directory views are there unlike some clients who only use a remote view (forcing me to launch a explorer window to look for each and every file I wanna upload).

It's a also a bit prettier and faster than WinSCP.
