Best FTP Tool?

Scott Watermasysk is Looking For the Best FTP Tool: I am tired of holding my breath every time I have to FTP a couple of files to a live site. I would like to find the hands down best FTP tool out there. Free is nice, but not necessary. Any suggestions? I used to use…

Just Links

Brad points to Microsoft’s How To: Secure Your Developer Workstation document. Sam notes the Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability project and says it “is a must read for .NET Architects… [and maybe] …for all serious .NET Programmers“.
