Looking for decent ftp client

Is there a decent ftp client available for Ubuntu?

I've looked through the repositories, and while there seem to be a
substantial number of ftp servers and command-line clients (these have
their place, but I'd rather not wear out my fingers with all that typing), 
there seems to be rather a lack of GUI ftp clients.

Unless I've missed spotting something, the choice seems to come down to
gftp or KBear, both of which seem a bit lacking (gftp's bookmark manager
is somewhat rudimentary, and KBear confuses things by lacking the
traditional simple two-pane view ..not to mention that it seems to crash
for me any time I attempt to transfer anything!). These projects seem to
have potential, but they don't seem to be quite ready just yet..

Can anybody recommend an alternative ftp client that's reliable and
