My vote for best FTP Client: FileZilla

LifeHacker’s Hive Five series calls for the best FTP Clients out there. My vote goes to FileZilla.

I made the switch to it after using CuteFTP about two years ago. FileZilla simply worked and worked well for me when it comes to uploading and downloading files from the numerous blogs I’ve owned, setup, fixed, maintained and upgraded including those that belonged to my fellow bloggers and friends.

FileZilla is a free and open-source that is "fast and reliable cross-platform FTP, FTPS and SFTP client with lots of useful features and an intuitive graphical user interface."

Looking at the current comments/votes on the LifeHacker post, it looks that FileZilla is currently in the lead.

Check out LifeHacker and vote for your ‘Best FTP Client‘ now.

Now it’s your turn, which do you think is the best FTP client out there?

*Hive Five is a feature series that asks readers to answer the most frequently asked question LifeHacker gets — "Which tool is the best?" It is a weekly series on LifeHacker and so far, the project has been awesome.

  1. Yup, FileZilla seems unbeatable right now. Favorite feature: when I click Edit on a local file and it's automatically uploaded every time I save changes to it.

  2. I read someone's post above that said it's the best 'free' ftp client.. no.. its the BEST ftp client that so happens to also be free.
