WSFTP supports various protocols such as FTP, FTP(SSL), HTTP and HTTPS. Includes a wizard and beginners can set a new connection pretty easy.
It allows to set default local folder and remote folder when you connect to a site from saved profiles and to tweak different options for each profile.
Supports drag and drop to deal with files, it displays transfer rate/speed, time left and progress of current transfers.
It has a separate section near the top where you can connect directly to an URL and start downloading files, instead using the web browser.
Good to use for beginners, but i do not find any features that makes it better than the high quality freeware FileZilla.
Download link will go to developer page where you need to register with your email address, in order to receive link for download.
