SmartFTP is a file transfer protocol client for Windows. This FTP client has been around for a long, long time, and it has been really polished since its beginnings. SmartFTP has a really intuitive graphical user interface, which really makes it easy to upload files to a server or just move files around using the FTP protocol. The GUI is divided into two panels. The left one is usually used for the FTP servers and the right one is usually used to browse through your computer contents. This FTP client takes a little bit from applications like Firefox, which use tabs. So instead of having to disconnect a site to open a new one, you can just open a new tab and browse through them. There is a nice panel down below that allows you to keep track of the files that you have queued for transfer. Rather than having to hit File - Connect, like with so many other clients, you can just use the neat bar at the top of the application, which lets you connect to sites in a snap. All the security features that you might expect from a top-of-the-line FTP client are there, so you can browse your sites safely.
