Open source FTP client

In my post from a couple of weeks back, where I raved about the new Mozilla Firefox preview release, I admitted to becoming a bit of an open source fan of late. Last night I tried out another open source product – FileZilla.

FileZilla is an FTP client for Windows (there is also a FileZilla Server product). It supports both FTP and SFTP, and includes a well thought-out interface with a local site view, a remote site view and details of currently queued files for upload/download.

Using FileZilla, uploading a new version of my website took seconds, with FileZilla launching as many concurrent FTP sessions as my ISP would allow from a single upload request.

It looks like this tool could be a big time saver.
