I'm very new to Windows 8 but would like to know if there are any good features or client tools available for FTP (like filezilla)?

May I know the reason of downvote? – Dewsworld Oct 31 '12 at 9:03
Dewsworld, you have been downvoted because your question doesn't show any research effort. A simple Google search or a search in the Windows Store would have been enough. Filezilla will work on Windows 8 and maybe there are FTP clients in the store. Your question is more something for a forum. Superuser (and all StackExchange sites) are Q&A sites. Pose clear questions and say what steps you have undertaken, and you will get decent answers. – Peter Oct 31 '12 at 9:04
I'm used to filezilla, so I thought maybe something's better here on Windows 8, something with the release. – Dewsworld Oct 31 '12 at 9:18

question is closed by mistake. windows7 has ftp.exe and ftp as folder support. It is possible to answer the same to windows8. – Znik Jan 8 '15 at 7:59

Internet Explorer can navigate FTP servers, and has supported that for a very long time (probably since it first was released).

I think you can map a FTP server to a drive letter using the regular "map network drive" functionality, which should allow you to upload as well as download if you have the proper privileges on the FTP server.
