Good FTP transfer program?

Hello all - I've been using KFTPGrabber for transfers to and from my website. I don't quite feel like it's all I want, though, and wanted to ask if anyone can suggest other programs for me to consider. Any ideas?

gftp, console ftp, scp through ssh?

it's hard to reccomend things without knowing what you're requirements are.

I believe konqueror also has the cabaility.

Kasablanca and gFTP are good alternatives.

I used filezilla for a while, it seems to do the job.

I just use Konqueror. Could check if Dolphin supports FTP, I've been hearing good things about that.

Another recomendation for konqueror, you dont even fell that you´re on a FTP account, its just like a folder in your three!

I use d4x, it's very handy if you need to organize the downloads in folders.
