    … Nothing like using the / nautilus box; visually it is the best and easiest to manipulate everything!

      Greetings, Cesar! It is certainly preferable to use the native utilities of the apps that already come in our GNU / Linux Distros. Filezilla is more for when you need more ftp connectivity features or are already used to doing more than just connecting, copying or downloading files via ftp. But in short, Filezilla is an excellent Free Software tool in its area.
