If you a web designer or developer you must know the importance FTP but this FTP is fading away for most of the people. As a web developer I have used so many FTP clients but none of them was as good as FileZilla. FileZilla is still one of the best FTP client because of its easier interface and usability.
FileZilla is an open-source free FTP client available in almost every platform and bundled with lots of features.
