      POX Cyberduck is a good FTP/SFTP client for macOS and Windows. It's been my go-to FTP software for years, and it has a much more modern and clean interface compared to FileZilla. The only drawback is that it's not available for Linux.

      Transmit vs FileZilla opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Transmit is a great alternative to FileZilla.
      POX Definitely the best alternative to FileZilla with Cyberduck. It has a very clean and modern interface with lots of useful features, but it costs a few bucks. So, if you want something free, go with Cyberduck or FileZilla, but if you're ready to spend some $ in a good software, then buy Transmit.
