I know someone's said it already but I _really_ like LeechFTP, mainly
because it enables you to multi-thread your downloads/uploads on servers
that allow it, thus sharing the bandwidth to download several files at the
same time.

Nice feature that Dreamweaver lacks. I don't like the way DW "freezes"
during the FTP, I always have the impression it freezed for good and am
tempted by a Ctrl+Alt+Del...
