    Default Best freeware FTP software now?

    Did a search here and found some old opinions about FTP ... but nowadays what is the best freeware FTP around. SmartFTP? (I used to use Cute FTP but I don't think it's freeware anymore). I run Windows XP but don't use Internet Explorer if it makes a difference.

    Just use a browser to log into it. Save you downloading a FTP program at all.

    You can use Opera to log into an FTP site. So any browser should.

    Depends what u want to use it for. If its just for getting files, a browser will do.

    I played with a few, and settled on FTP commander, finding it easy to get around.

    It is the free version ,available here
    Ever stop to think, and forgot to start again?

    ws_ftp LE (light Edition) is great. It's free and super easy to use.
