Lftp was new to me a year ago, now my FTP client of choice (with sftp protocol).

My pick? LFTP. Simple and easy to use. I use it on a regular basis.

Voted gFTP, however, I don't really use it much, I tend to use wget if I'm after downloading a file.

Filezilla gets my vote, in addition to FTP(S) it supports SFTP which is very important for me.

I use scp (with certificates) with wildcards for uploading, although all my uploads are to servers I own. I can't remember the last time I used ftp, once this year perhaps.

lftp.

And I suspect that a large percentage of the votes for lftp are coming from Slackware users.

I've used konqueror to do drag and drop to my website, and to download packages from ftp sites. It works well. Although Konqueror is a Swiss Army knife tool, I would consider voting for Konqueror for FTP client of the year, if it were one of the choices.
