FileZilla is a fast and reliable FTP client and server with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface.
Reviewing 2.2.32 (Mar 24, 2008)
Free is too expensive for this thing.
I often do huge uploads to my web host. For whatever reason, whenever I do, I get socket errors from the host after many hours of uploading. Maybe the host sucks, I don't know and it doesn't matter.
When FileZilla is being used for the upload, and the socket error occurs, the piece of garbage automatically restarts the upload, even though I have the upload restart settings configured to RESUME, not restart. I don't care if I can totally disable retries, because I don't want to do that. I just want the client not to do something moronic, like rewrite a multi-GB file that is in the middle of being uploaded.
When FTP Voyager is being used, and the socket error occurs, it does not restart the upload. This isn't the best behavior, but it sure beats what FileZilla does.
Why don't the authors of FTP clients make it so they simply resume automatically? Why? Is this not brain-dead obvious behavior to at least have as an option?

The best FTP client: free, fast, simple, lot's of proxy support,... Version 3 is completely useless except it started to be released also for Linux.

Still the best FTP client. The final release of Filezilla 3 is a huge let down, but this is still amazing.

pros: It's free
cons: too simple, outdated, interface is from the year 2000, no need to use "external" FTP aplication for simple things...
On Windows platform, Total Commander 7 does EVERYTHING this does and more, in a more pleasant and convenient way with a much much much better interface. Abilities like synchronize directories etc just make it my FTP choice for simple things. But it is a commercial application...
On linux...FileZilla 3 looks promising, but not now.
For hardcore FTP players, we have just another leauge of another FTP applications.
