I was told that KBear is very buggy. My experience makes no exception, which
is why I didn't go past mere 'experimentations' with KBear. I would have to
recommend gFTP, which is multi-threaded. Konqueror is also a very powerful
FTP tool if you use KDE.

Last month I wrote a review focusing on Linux FTP clients, so if you have
interest < http://schestowitz.com/Weblog/archives/2005/08/01/firefox-ftp/

Hope it helps,
