FileZilla ftw, been using it for years now and quick and simple - two great reasons I use most things. I do not have time to fight with things to make them work - they just need to work the first time.

For safety reason avoid using any free open source ftp client.

I always use FileZilla as it is easy to use & most convincing FTP software.

It really depends on what I'm doing. If I'm transferring files I'll usually use filezilla, unless I only need to upload 1-2 images, etc.

I always use FTP, default server file managers are very slow and unintuitive. I use Dreamweaver's built in FTP because I do sites in Dreamweaver so it's much easier. But sometimes I also use FileZilla and Total Commander.

Filzilla is a great FTP software. It is easy to use, manage & download.

I use whatever works at the time.

File Manger, WinSCP, FileZilla, FireFTP. Depends on what I'm doing and where I'm at. Although I never use cPanel's file manager to edit files, that just does not do what I want it to do.

I personally prefer File Manager,but there are situations when I need to upload large files I prefer to use FTP.

I personally don't like File Manager because it takes to long to upload several files all at once, I prefer FileZilla to speed things up.
