So I've just re-installed my PC, and before I download Filezilla, I'm interested to know what FTP software other people use :)

I switched from FileZilla to WinSCP and have been liking it so far.

I use WinSCP for one server... because Filezilla for some reason doesn't like to connect to it! Haha. It's definitely good, but I've been using Filezilla for over a decade now.. it's tough to get out of that rhythm!

So far been using FileZilla, The only problem I had was to navigate and open files in it, takes time to edit and a few clicks. Otherwise Its a Good software. Maybe will give a try on WinSCP.

How are you editing? You can right-click View/Edit, then when you save the file it automatically prompts a re-upload request.

Winscp with the live sync feature has been a saver for me.

Filezilla, command-line (nc)ftp or my own FTP deployment thingy, burdock when I have to.

Honestly, I'd try to keep clear of using FTP if at all possible.
