NetDrive is probably the most elegant solution. OFM managers Like FAR and Total Commander can be used as FTP clients.

Among command like clients LFTP   Curl should probably be mentioned. 

Among free GUI-based FTP clients WinSCP is probably the best. See description in Chapter 5 (History of UNIX Orthodox File managers) of Less is More: The Orthodox File Manager(OFM) Paradigm

Filezilla is definitely worth a look. It is well supported and has won several awards

Net Vampire by Alex Shovkoplyas

This program is not a simple FTP client -- it is fully automatic FTP and HTTP file downloader. It will start at the time you specify and make as many attempts to download the file as you request. Net Vampire resumes broken connections and restarts downloads at the current position for both FTP and Web servers. To start file retrieval, just drag and drop a URL from your browser. Net Vampire provides flexible job scheduling, dialup control and support for many proxy types, including Socks. You can use multiple downloading locations for the file and switch among them on the fly. In addition to performing real-time testing, Net Vampire collects long-term site statistics, which further helps you to choose the best file location. A built-in search engine can find files on both FTP and HTTP servers. Net Vampire can list FTP directories and extract links from the downloaded HTML pages. All found links can be added to the main Job List. On job completion, Net Vampire can run a virus checker, open the received file, disconnect the modem, or shut down the computer. A detailed session log, data flow histogram, and many configurable options make download troubleshooting easier.

Shareware (built-in OFM mangers clients are actually more convenient, but here I am probably biased ;-). For FTP file transfers under Win95, I often use Windows Commander see ../OFM/index.shtml

**** WebDrive FTP Client Software by RiverFront Software

a revolutionary FTP client. Provide you with a fake networking drive instead of direct working with FTP site. Highly recommended. Shareware $39.

WebDrive is a Windows 95/98 FTP software client that allows you to map an Internet FTP site to a local drive utilizing the standard FTP protocol. This enables you to connect to an FTP site and perform familiar file operations like copy, xcopy, and directory functions with the Windows explorer, a DOS box, or any other application like Microsoft Word, Excel, etc. WebDrive instantly FTP enables any application that reads or writes files by allowing the application to read files from or write files to the FTP site.

Until now, in order to upload or download files from an FTP site, you needed to run a client FTP utility that presented a user interface to manually select the files to transfer. The WebDrive FTP client makes the FTP site an extension of the file system which enables you to use any application to upload or download files to the FTP site transparently.
