Filezilla was recommended to me as the best way to work with FTP.  
Anything better out there?

I really like FTP Commander - the interface is simple and it is free.

We use Filezilla in places where the demands are simple and the free client will work.

I use WS_FTP Pro from Ipswitch. It is inexpensive but top of class and can handle any situation I have been able to throw at it.

The suggestions above are great,  I also use Fillazilla.   I work in Dreamweaver, it's FTP is great.    The only other FTP i use is a plugin with Notepad++.  

You really can't go wrong with any of these suggestions

What capabilities / use cases do you need?  Some products are better at say command line scripting than GUI usages.  There are different flavors of FTP, and secure versions of FTP, do you know what capabilities you need?  Are you wanting to run a server, or a client instance?  What type of host are you connecting to, and what do you need or want to do once you connect?  Browse, edit, download, upload, etc?

The more info you can share the better the recommendations will be from the experts.

windows explorer has ftp built in. just type the ftp address in the path bar and it will connect and prompt for login details.

Are you asking about an FTP server or an FTP client... big difference.
