    The two usually recommended ones are Transmit ($30) or Cyberduck (Free).

    Personally I use Transmit, and AFAIR both support syncing.

    What do you mean what I'm I talking about... what are you talking about by not knowing what I mean by sync?

    I mean exactly what I said. I'm curious, no need to snap my head off because I can't read your mind. What are you syncing? I wasn't aware people used FTP for syncing something. Do you mean the contents of a local folder can be synced to a remote folder, rather than just dumping a local to remote or remote to local?

    If that is the case, using the Rsync protocol is probably a lot more efficient than FTP (if you have SSH access to the remote machine). Whenever I'm syncing directories on two machines I always use that, which I guess is why I'm not aware of using an FTP program to sync. It only copies what has changed.

    If Cyberduck doesn't work out for you, I'll add a recommendation for Yummy FTP. Of the ones I tried, I liked this the best.

    I'd recommend CyberDuck, very good client and definitely supports synching, I've been using for a while now with no complaints.

    Another for Cyberduck. Free, and it's really a great client. I've used it for quite a while now.
