On the PC side (for those pc users who are following this thread) I now 
use Beyond Compare(1) for most day to day file transfers. It's a 
directory and file comparison tool that supports FTP as well as regular 
local/network directory comparisons.
It has the side by side view you are talking about, and supports 
filtering and tweaking timezone offsets etc. to ensure you are uploading 
the right files. It will synch deep directory structures.

My only complaints are no scp/sftp support yet, and no support for chmod 
like you might expect from a dedicated ftp client.
