Just as you i'm looking for a good ftp-klient.

I have that problem with KFTPGrabber to, with high CPU and if you connect
FTPS it's running at 100% CPU and alot of crashes.

Kasablanka segfault all the time.

As already mention here you can use Konquere as a ftp-client the major
is you can't use any encrypted ftp with it.

GFtp is good as long you don't wan't encryption.

Krusader is a good filebrowser that also can do ftp, fish, sftp.

In windows a use Filzilla and it can handle all ftp protocol i need to have,
there is
a Linux version you can try. I have never tried that though.
