Gotek - Which firmware?

Hi

I recently purchased a Gotek drive from amigastore.eu:
https://amigastore.eu/en/323-usb-flo...r-gotek.html#/
and installed it in an external floppydrive-case I had lying about. When I did the purchase, I really didn't think too much about the firmware - I figured I could always reflash it if needed. At the moment it's running FlashFloppy, but I can see there's a number of alternatives?

So here's the question - and I'm sure it has been asked before, but I doubt that posts being a couple of years old, are still representative as software has a tendency to evolve -Which firmware for the Gotek do you use, and why?

FlashFloppy and HxC. Just because I want to stay current on both.

Both are working choices.

I use FlashFloppy.

Just because I don't use the drives that I have that much.

I have 6x drives, and I don't fancy paying €70 odd to put HxC on each of them, nor do I just want to put it on one drive, where it'll be different than all the rest.

I started using FlashFloppy because it could be flashed via USB A-A cable, and I couldn't get the USB-Serial adapters I had working to flash HxC
