should command-line scp be in this poll since it supports keys ?

lftp, not only for browsing FTP servers but also HTTP servers with simple file listing

This seems a strange decision for these days and times... I mean, does anyone actually use a dedicated ftp client anymore? Not to mention torrent... Nor that most ftp sites are accessed via http and d/l's handled browser side these days. Hmm...

Much to my surprise, it was one of the most requested categories since we removed it years back. That said, it will likely be one of the revolving categories, so will probably not be back next year.

HAHA! Now that is a surprise to me too - that it had ever been out of favor or removed (not that I pay that much attention).

Although I now use only sftp, mostly over lftp, it is still an essential every day tool and I still think of them as "FTP" clients.

I guess it all comes down to the individual frame of reference. So let me make the first request for keeping it on the list next year.

I use Kermit, but it wasn't in the list so I voted for LFTP because that's my backup solution.

I really wish FTP would just die already, but when required LFTP. I'd like to see more FTP servers running RSYNC instead.

I don't know why it seems to be so in vogue for folks to bash old tried and true protocols. FTP works great for what it was designed to do. Still has it's place, e.g. on my local trusted lan, where I don't need the overhead of scp or sftp and feeling too lazy to copy to USB and use the old sneaker network.

If that doesn't fit your use case, by all means use something else! But need to get hostile towards ftp.

FileZilla for me ... it has some great features, and works on Windows, so I can have my clients install it. But I wish (oh do I wish!) it could be run entirely in command-line mode. Windows' FTP is ... frustrating.

I've never used an FTP client I like better than Konqueror

It's all I ever use Konqueror for in fact. KDE Wallet remembers all my FTP logins and I have pairs of links on the bookmarks toolbar. First I click on the site's FTP link and, after I'm logged in, I split the screen and click on the link to my local folder for that site (which I've placed just to the right of the FTP link). Then I just drag and drop the relevant files. It's a simple, big-screen, intuitive way to manipulate files from my computer to the web. Seriously, it belongs on this list.
