Five cost-effective FTP clients

FileZilla

FileZilla should, in most cases, be the de facto standard free FTP client for Windows, Linux, and Mac. It's simple to use, supports FTP/SFTP/FTPS, offers a free FTP server solution, has IPv6 support, includes filename filters and directory comparison, logs to a file, has a tabbed interface (so you can have more than one FTP connection open at a time — even transfer files between servers), and much more. This is the cross-platform drag-and-drop FTP client you've been looking for.
