    Note, the ones I and some other's mentioned all accomplish different tasks in their own special way, some do more than just ftp.

    Flashfxp could fxp, simple as that.
    Leechftp is a single interface for multiple ftp connections from a single server if the server supports it.
    bpftp, well, I've using this since day one and I can't let go. Flashfxp could kinda replace bpftp.

    I use flashfxp or cuteftp pro 2. The best free FTP software I ever used was ws_ftp. You're not going to find much better than that without having to pay.

    i've been using flashget for a few weeks now. it's very nice, i like it more then any of the other ones i've used, but the only problem is that you can only use it to recieve files. you can't upload with it. so when i need to upload, i fire up AceFTP 3 pro. is there a version of flashget that also allows me to upload?
