Are there any good FTP programs that support SFTP, FTPS, FTP, SCP plus
doesn't store the password in plaintext like filezilla does?

Thank you!

It depends on what your requirements are. Are you specifically
looking for a client with a GUI interface? I went looking for
the best line-mode FTP client a couple of years ago, and the best
one I could find was lftp. It is packaged for Debian, and is very
good. It supports advanced features like simultaneous multi-tasking
file transfers, many protocols, including FTPS, FTP, SFTP, HTTP,
HTTPS, and FISH. I'm not sure about SCP though. Of course, I was
specifically *not* looking for a GUI client, since I was installing
it on a serer without X support. If you specifically require a GUI
"point and click, drop and drag" type interface, this will not meet
your requirements. I don't know how it stores the password, either.

For SCP you might want to look at putty-tools. But I've never used it.
gftp-gtk looks like a possibility. It's GUI. But I've never used it
either and I don't know its capabilities.

I use konqueror with kdewallet to store passwords.

I certainly hope that you are aware of this issue, then:
Wrong timestamp on files copied
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55804

It has caused me quite some problems when using Konqueror as my FTP client.

For SFTP and SCP I understand filezilla can use ssh-agent (and you could
use key-based authentication). In case of FTP the password gets sent in
plain text over the wire anyway, which is much more insecure.

What are you trying to achieve?

Andrei
