FileZilla – A (or The?) FOSS FTP Client

Firstly, what’s the fuss about FOSS? Well, it’s an acronym for “Free and Open Source Software”.

If you've worked on transferring files from one system to another, then you might already be aware of this tool. If not, then this is for you.

FileZilla is a very good free, open source and GUI-based FTP client. Something like this is always preferred to command-line utility that comes by default with the desktop/laptop. http://filezilla-project.org/ is where you can download the software from. Note that it also has a server edition that you can try if interested.
