Before describe this program it seems relevant to mention that familiar for many users World Wide Web is only a part of Internet. Another big and older part is FTP world that is a real depot of tremendous amount of various information that frequently is inaccessible from WWW world, because FTP and WWW worlds use different types of protocols, so to enjoy all benefits of FTP world you need a special kind of software usually known as FTP client.
FTP Explorer is one of the most popular FTP clients. With this program you can download or upload files to one or more servers while browsing and selecting files to transfer on another. FTP Explorer handles all file transfer requests in the background, so you don't have to wait while files copy to continue browsing the current server. You can even connect to a different server, and the program will automatically log off of the original server once the requested transfer has completed. FTP Explorer will automatically retry if the connection attempt fails. You can configure the number of times it should try to connect, and the time delay between connection attempts. Program also attempts to resume a file transfer if it detects a file with the same name in the current download directory. (Note: not all ftp servers support this option.) FTP Explorer can automatically download and display the proper description of each file with the file that it describes. As an option, the program will automatically download the index file on the server and display the file descriptions next to the appropriate files while you browse. Several standard index file formats are currently supported. The Quick Connect option lets you immediately connect to a site without having to go through the usual song-and-dance of adding a site to the profile list.
Full Drag and Drop support. Simply drag one or more files or complete directory structures onto the FTP Explorer's file view area to transfer them to the location of the server that is currently connected. Receiving files is also as simple as dragging one or more files (or directories) onto your desktop, or any other folder.
Support for fpArchie is also included with FTP Explorer (take a look at fpArchie).
