    I use Fetch, but just because I'm comfortable with it. I hear Cyberduck is real good.

    I was in the same boat about a year ago, but none of the free FTP clients met all my needs. In the end I plopped down $29 for Transmit. If you don't find a free FTP client you like, check out Transmit.

    I apologize for my ignorance... but what's wrong with just using apples Connect to Server for FTP again?

    I've used Vicomsoft's FTP program for years, but I just downloaded Cyberduck to use with my iDisk since the Vicomsoft program doesn't support WebDAV. Wow, what a difference in speed versus the Finder! iDisk is actually usable now.

    If you don't need a GUI, how about just 'ftp' from the terminal?

    ... and that's why you should give FileZilla a try

    Fetch is good...if you're a student or academic employee, you can qualify for a free license if you use your .edu email address.

    My only gripe with Fetch is that it doesn't warn you when you are going to overwrite remotely, which can be a problem if you deal with a lot of production sites.

    Cyberduck is OK...I find it clunky though.

    Its kinda even more uglier in Mac (guess the contrast b/w gorgeous and ugly is much much more than in Win:p)

    But its really efficient in the end and thats what you want! I currently though bought transmit which supports both WebDAV and FTP. And its also really really slick and great!:D

    Cyberduck paired with QuickSilver. I can return to an old location in a couple of clicks.

    I certainly agree with this. I just started using CyberDuck a few weeks ago and I hate chasing after the download window.
