I use gFTP because it's multi-threaded. It is relatively reliable too,
running on Fedora Core II. I haven't used KBear, but I have it installed.
As soon as I post this message, I'll go and give it a go.

That FireFTP extension is getting my site about 500 visitors a month (I
wrote about it when it came out). It is rather buggy though. I use it only
at home when I make my bi-weekly backup of new photos. I just need to open
a new tab and toss it in some Webspace. Very efficient...

Try KDE. You can't beat drag-and-drop that's also multi-threaded. I think my
version of KDE (3.1) does not support secure FTP authentication though, so
I can't use KDE alone. That's why I sometimes use gFTP.

Open a location in File Management mode, Top menu -> Tools -> Create Image

With some enhancements, you can produce some beautiful pages, handling
thousands of pictures with just the command-line.

One among many...
