I'm using CuteFTP 4.2 right now. Would you recommend another?

I used to use CuteFTP but it went completely loco on me so i've changed to Leapftp which works great and has very few bugs.

OK, here's a small addendum. In addition to just telling your fav FTP software, WHY do you like it the best (in my case, better than CuteFTP)?

FTPvoyager has an interface that is almost like windows explorer (not IE).

Very simple to use (don't even have to think about it) drag and drop.

stores FTP sites in a logical manner. Easy to open multiple FTP sessions on the fly.

Compatable with all types of FTP servers (unix, windows, linux)

what else can I say? D-load the 30 day trial and check it out, what do you have to lose?

www.ftpvoyager.com

I have used cute, WS, bullet, IE, and about 10 others I can't even name. This one blows them all away.

Ditto, you can't beat free software!

BTW, CuteFTP is one of the packages on the "spyware" list... just in case that interests anyone.

I tried tons about a year ago and settled on leechFTP cuz it's free.


WS FTP: clean, simple and UGLY (unless they updated it)

Bulletproof: My favorite, but it's not free

CuteFTP: crashed on me all the time. never got to really use it
