The most important feature of any FTP client is the ability to queue your downloads. If you are downloading, for example, massive 30 GB torrents from a seedbox, you need to process them consecutively, not run multiple file transfers concurrently. Otherwise, they would take too long and run a high risk of failing. Transfer queuing is currently broken on both Mac and PC. Queuing was originally added in v2.8 of Cyberduck, way back in September 2007. Sadly, they subsequently broke this essential feature in v6.0 when they tried to add other, less important, features - in May 2017. This bug has apparently been ignored by the developers in all of the last 24 updates. This loss of functionality was clearly not intentional because the corresponding options, which allow you to select the number of simultaneous transfers, are still there - they just no longer do anything. Even if you only choose one transfer, every single download placed in the queue starts immediately and without waiting for the previous ones to complete. It's less of a "queue" and more of a free-for-all. Use FileZilla if you want the most recent version of your FTP client with working queuing or use Cyberduck v5.4.4 if you are determined to use Cyberduck and don't mind running an older version in order to retain proper transfer queue control! Cyberduck v5.4.4: Windows installer Cyberduck v5.4.4: Mac installer Edit: This is due to be fixed in v7. It's on the roadmap! See More
Good Sync is actually the underlying sync software for Adobe Creative Cloud, but It's also a really great FTP client. It can connect via ftp, webdav, ftps, and a bunch other protocols. It's nice because you can basically just have a normal folder in on your computer that automatically uploads to FTP whenever you change a file in it. Very fast and reliable. Highly recommend.

WebDrive has been very useful in allowing our users to not worry about the client software they are using. We (the admins) preconfigured the sites ahead of time and each user has their proper sites ready to go and connect at login for them to assorted drive letters. Users can simply work within their normal environment (Windows Explorer on Windows and Finder on Mac) and not have to learn new products or even login. They open Windows Explorer and they can view and transfer files, including between various servers (e.g. Transfer between SFTP server and Google Drive or between Google Drive and OneDrive for Business, etc.).
