3 WinSCP

I liked this software very much even though it is not popular like CyberDuck , FileZilla etc.It looks like Windows Explorer so the drag and drop option is available. We can create new files and folder just like in Windows Explorer.

So uploading , editing will be very easy. drag and drop also possible.So i think it is the best FTP client.It support SSL/SSH, SFTP,FTPS etc.If you are a beginner wWinSCP is the best software it is very easy to install and configure and also easy to connect with your server. It is a best tool for both beginner and professionals.
