WinSCP matches all your requirements.
Graphical: Yes – There are two alternative interfaces:
Feels like a Windows explorer window: Yes – One of the interfaces is explicitly designed after Windows File Explorer.
Supports drag and drop: Yes – Both between file panels and between other applications.Uploading via ...
Use the zip option instead of the .exe installer, and simply unzip filezilla to where you want it - other than to bundle the crapware and potentially check for updates, why would filezilla need an installer?
Alternatively, it seems like there is a nowrap link for sourceforge downloads, so instead of the default
Notepad++ can do this with the nppFTP plugin. Now this isn't cross-platform, but I think it does deserve mention here. (And if no better solutions presents itself, you could even run it under Wine/CrossOver).
When you connect via nppFTP you get a filebrowser in a panel on the right, where you can directly open files from the tree, and changes are directly ...
Keep away from it, at least as long as they reference the SourceForge download site!
Edit 2: Since this answer in 2014, SourceForge has got new owners, who abandoned the adware bundling policy, but FileZilla, back then one of their first, major partners for adware, has still been distributed with adware bundles through other channels.
The FileZilla ...
A while ago, I've used ProFTPD, which is also recommended at AskUbuntu for offering a nice and user-friendly GUI:
GAdmin-ProFTPD (source: Wikipedia; click image for larger variant)
Work on Ubuntu 13.10: yes
GUI: Yes (see screenshot)
Easy to use: yes
I have to admit I never used the GUI myself. But ProFTPD itself always was running stable, and ...
I'd recommend Sublime Text.
Sublime has everything you would expect in a minor IDE or an amazing text editor and yet is very very light. Pretty much any area that you want to have more features there is a simply massive plugin library. Sublime Text is not free but it on the cheap end of software, it also has a free unlimited trial so you can test it and ...
I have used the 3 following FTP clients during the past years so here is my feedback:
WinSCP: the one that I currently use. There is a portable version, just one .exe file (and the .ini file for configuration). Don't forget to turn on the "Explorer" interface:
View > Preferences > Environment > Interface > Explorer, which is (IMHO) handier.
Benchmark: it ...

When you create a PHP project, you can specify "PHP ...
You can use SFTP or you can use rsync over SSH. You need to configure your router for port forwarding port 22.
It meets your requirements, because:
It's encrypted using a password or an SSH key
There's no server in the middle
It's quick to set up:
Install openssh-server (and additionally rsync, if you want to use that) on your computer
(optionally) Setup ...
If you are on Windows, WinSCP has incremental site search.
It can even import sites/sessions from FileZilla. It supports folders, similarly to FileZilla, too.
And it supports a larger set of protocols and features than FileZilla does.

For some period of time I used Komodo Edit.
Komodo Edit is a stripped down version of Komodo IDE. Nevertheless Komodo Edit is a full featured text editor with such features as syntax highlighting, automatic insertion of matching parentheses, FTP support, and many other features a modern editor should have.
(Later I switched to Kate because Komodo's bad ...
I used to be an Eclipse fan, but a few years ago I moved to NetBeans and have never looked back.
From your request:
free and open source <=== check
FTP support (also SFTP) <=== https://blogs.oracle.com/netbeansphp/entry/ftp_support_added

Emacs (home page) meets all your requirements. It's good (this is subjective so I simply assert that it is good; I do use it daily). It's free (it's one of the historical highlights of the free software movement). It's cross-platform (available on just about any Unix variant — get it from your package manager, or more recent versions for OSX, as well as on ...
FileZilla is a good FTP file browser and allows for basic editing as long as you have the correct software install. So for example, if you wanted to edit index.html on your website, you can do you edits in a program like Notepad++(for example), save it, and then upload it back to your website. Plus its cross-platform and open-source.
If you are looking for ...
Cyberduck does this with the editor of your choice - you can add editors from "edit -> preferences", simply right-click on a file and select "edit with", and your editor of choice. This would allow you to use your favoured IDE or code editor, like sublime text on files on your website as if it was a locally hosted file (Behind the scenes, it downloads, ...
You can try WebStorm. Based on your requirements it has:
Instant autocomplete/autosuggest for HTML, CSS, and JS. I am not sure about PHP, but you try PHPStorm for that.
Highlight blocks (either like this or this), where it is easy and obvious to see where a block starts and ends.
Ability to push and commit to Git repo directly.
I am not sure abot FTP ...
Windows File Explorer is capable of acting as a FTP client. This is likely the easiest way to allow users who don't know how to use FTP to use FTP, as it acts as if it were just a regular directory.
Open File Explorer
Enter the FTP address into the address bar (e.g. ftp://ftp.gnu.org)
Enter username and password at the prompt (if required)
Quick access between different folders (eg root to root, wp-content/themes to wp-content/themes etc. I spend forver traversing directories)
WinSCP has synchronized browsing and bookmarks.
Cloud storage of all my site logins (not file storage, just "Site Manager" stuff)
I think you mean sharing FTP client config/credentials across machines? You can set ...
Maybe a little late, but hope it's still useful.
I use HashCheck for this: free, open-source, licensed under a BSD-style license, and written in C. It works on Windows 7, both x86 and x64.
It's implemented as an Explorer shell extension. It adds a Checksum tab to the properties dialog of files and folders which shows the checksums of each selected file, ...
I suggest you cfv.
It runs on Windows too ("works on linux, freebsd, openbsd, netbsd, solaris, macosx, and windows.").
easy to use
It's a command line tool, cfv -C -t sha1 -rr will generate you a <current directory name>.sha1 checksum file (recursive) that you can check with cfv -T -f my.sha1.
It's a command line tool ...
CRiSP is a multiplatform editor (Mac/Windows/Linux) which can edit files from remote locations (including ftp/sftp support). It caches the files locally so you can edit as normal, and on saving, have the option to auto upload.
CRiSP pretty much contains all the modern features expected of a programmers editor (syntax highlighting, template support, default ...
Ultraedit (and its IDE superset, UltraEdit Studio) is an excellent programming editor; which also has a great native functionality to open/save files to FTP sites.
Linux examples and walkthrough

Please note that when you open a file from FTP, Ctrl+S will save straight to FTP.
It even has FTP site manager so you don't ...
Doesnt chrome in chromeos accept the FTP:// protocol in one of its tabs?
I dont use Chrome that often, but Firefox and IE do allow you to browse FTP sites with directory listing.
Here is a screenshot of chrome browsing an ftp site
This download specific however - I am unsure how to do FTP uploads using this method, but your question does not specify.
I think there is a problem with the question. The question refers to "FTP Server" and states "support SFTP", but FTP and SFTP are two different protocols. Also, from one of the comments we can see that you clearly talk about being able to connect to "server terminal and use the shell like bash", so it's probably safe to infer that the server you're talking ...
