Download manager and accelerator. Free Download Manager
extends Internet Explorer and Firefox stepping in to handle
Instead of the simple "Save As..." dialog you get from Internet
Explorer, Free Download Manager presents a custom dialog when
you download files from the internet. You can setup groups, each
with a custom destination folder, to organize your downloaded
files as you get them. A default group is automatically selected based
on the extension of the download file, but you can easily change
this, send the file to a particular directory, or create a new group
all from the download dialog.
Free Download Manager supports file splitting to accelerate
downloads (different parts of the file are downloaded at the
same time and stitched together automatically), and resuming
or restarting broken downloads. A separate window (accessed
from the task tray) provides a log of all downloaded files.
Pro: Downloads can be classified as they arrive. File
splitting accelerates downloading large files.
Con: Existing download groups can't be edited from
the "Add Download" dialog (new ones can be added though).
The groups must be edited from the main application window.
