I use the USB cable to connect my EOS70D to my PC running Windows 7 and my iMac running OSX 10.9.1 with only minor frustration from the software. Using a card reader is faster and easier.
Plus I forget to turn the camera off. Battery performance, while much better in Canon than some other brands, still isn't stellar. But we used to change rolls of film every 24 or 36 shots, and sometimes just to get a higher ISO.
I have yet to see good software bundled with a camera, and I own a few brands.

I now have a eos rebel t5 and before that I had a eos rebe XSi. Windows 7. Once I plugged in the usb cord into the camethe other end into the usb port and then turned to camera on, it would bring up the tag download. From there I could Label or tag my pictures suck as Thanksgiving and the date. Then click Enter on the keyboard. From there it would start downloading.
Some time later I was not able to do it that way. Found out later that I would double click Computer and of course with the cord attached to the camera and to the usb port and then turn on the camera. Double click Computer on the desktop. Then scroll down and you will see the Canon icon. Right click that icon and then select Import pictures and videos from that drop down.. By doing that, there will be a Tag and you can type in what ever occassion such as Thanksgiving. I always like also to type in the date. Thcn click Enter on your Keyboad and it will start downloading your pictures. Usually or always the pictures will go directly to your Picture folder. However, the next window that comes up, you should Close out that window and go to your Picture folder to where the pictures are located.
Very simple to do.
