I just type 'ftp' in the Terminal. Completely scriptable, free, and totally reliable.

I like Transmit...

I've used terminal once.. but terminal makes me nervous.

I guess that since the days when I started using the internet, and I did a lot of FTP'ing by command line, I've now grown so used to a GUI that the command line seems foreign.

I'm gonna have to work on that... there's so much I could do with Terminal!

RBrowser. I've never used the built-in FTP in the terminal, but I use "Command Prompt" (i.e. DOS) on my Winblows PC at work to do FTP all the time. It really isn't that hard.

Yes, this was asked a week or so ago. I'll repeat my recommendation of NetFinder. Drag and drop just like the Mac desktop.

Transmit if you've got a small amount of money to throw at the task.

Cyberduck, if not.

I checked out Cyberduck but the OS on my internet comp is older than what the specs want...any way to download older versions?

I downloaded FETCH for now...seems simple...Cyberduck seems free though.

I've used Fetch for years, it's a bit odd to set up but works fine. I use it mostly for eBay pics so I'm not a "power" user.

transmit and fugu both work. Fugu is free and allows for SFTPing.

Another vote for Transmit.

It has a widget where you can do a quick FTP, great for eBay types....

I still use Fetch.

The free version (v4?) is around, but hard to find.
