I have been using FileZilla. But it is unsupported in Windows 7. What are some good alternatives?

FileZilla works 100% on Windows 7. I use it every day and have never had an issue.
However you can also look at:
is a powerful ftp program that sets itself apart from other ftp clients by seamlessly integrating with your local Windows explorer.
Supports: Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 and Windows 7
Though I also think FileZilla should work fine with Windows 7. Though I'm reading something about a UAC conflict:
What problems could arise?
Filesystem virtualization is applied to pre-Vista programs without a proper manifest that are started in non-administrator mode. Following is a list of possible problems that could arise now or later:
The older application is updated and the new version includes a manifest In this case (as with Filezilla) the program suddenly won't use filesystem virtualization anymore. This will leave the user totally confused about where his files have gone.
UAC is disabled
Power users do this to restore the old XP behavior. All pre-Vista programs are affected! They could 'lose' saved files, configuration files and data stored directly into previously protected parts (and thus redirected to the VirtualStore).
Programs are started as administrator
Pre-Vista applications started as administrator will not have filesystem virtualization applied and seem to 'lose' any data saved into protected paths and redirected to the VirtualStore.
What can I do to solve this?
My recommendation is to use FireFTP. It is a Firefox plug in and it works perfectly. Most people already use Firefox, so this is a nice way to keep it simple. You just select it from the menu and it will open in a browser tab. Very handy as it allows you to open multiple FTP tabs at once.
I like best Core FTP LE, with a nice user-interface and choke-full of features:
