Any GOOD GUI Ftp Client for Linux?

gFtp, use GTK, not cute and not comfortable use
filezilla, also GTK, GUI,queue and so on also not comfortable use
kftpgrabber, sometimes crash , often stalled in connect or transfer
kuftp,looks like flashfxp,not stabe
lftp ,yeah,very powerful but not GUI...

Is there and GOOD Ftp Client for linux,especially for KDE?
Powerful and comfortable use as FlashFxp in Windows?

FlashFxp looks very much like any other ftp program I've ever seen. What's so special about it? What particular feature in FlashFxp is it that you're not finding in the ones you've tried? That question would be easier to answer, because then we could point you to an ftp client that has feature X you're looking for.

Don't forget, "good" is an extremely subjective adjective.

In my opinion, no there isn't. All the GUI based clients seem to lack one aspect or another. Possibly this is because people have traditionally been happy using the command line, so the FTP GUI client projects don't draw in that much attention.

Anyway, that's speculation. The reason for this post is if you're usign KDE then Konquerer can do most of your FTP needs.

If you use Firefox, the FireFTP extension is as good as anything else.
