Have you ever tried WinSCP?

As a mac-user probably not, but I can tell you that it is the GOD of SCP apps. What makes it so good is one simple feature which I'll describe below.

The user interface is Norton commander style, ie. two side-by-side windows. To the left is your local tree and to the right your remote tree. WinSCP has this amazing little button which synchronizes navigation between the two windows. So.. provided that the folder structure in the left window matches the one in the right.. you only have to navigate one set of folders and the other one navigates automatically. This save's half the clicks it normally takes!

As a mac-based PHP web application developer, not having this feature is my single biggest bugbear. I tend to work on up to 10 applications at the same time... a change here, a bug-fix there and so forth. As a consequence I spend a LOT of my time navigating tree structures in order to upload a file in yonder folder over there in that corner of the hard-drive, up onto the server for testing.

Please, please, please... oh please add this feature for me! :)
