On the Mac side, Inerarchy (formerly anarchie) is probably the best all
around FTP client.
Fetch is an outdated, feature-poor client. Unfortunatley, there are about
4 ftp clients for the Mac.
Is another one that has some nice features, but a horrible UI.
For PC clients, I prefer bulletproof, www.bpftp.com but it has some major
flaws (lack of external drag and drop support), among other things.
CuteFTP is also very good, http://www.globalscape.com/
FTPVoyager is one of my least favorite clients, ranking up there with
WS_FTP. The interface is crowded, there is no option to clear the Quick
Connect box, and for some reason, it lost its registration information on
the pcr-dist 'image' that we have for the lab (DMDL). Reinstalling makes
SmartFTP, www.smartftp.com has some excellent features, but an incredibly
confusing interface, and many features are not at all intuitive.
FlashFXP is very nice, and also supports ftp to ftp transfers. It is
updated frequently, which is nice for people who care, but annoying for
everyone over at CIT.
I haven't used BestFTP at all...
ftp explorer is nice for quick, simple connection (there is a dll
available for download to disallow storing passwords as well).
