Advantages: schedule downloads , leech files , categorise downloads , seamless integration
I regularly download software from the Internet and have come to appreciate this product because of this. Here are the reasons why I recommend this product ,If your Internet connection disconnects/timeouts then you do not lose the download (you can restart it) this is great for those huge downloads (anybody thats downloaded Direct X or Paintshop PRo will know where I am coming from). I couldnt tell you how many times I lost a download before getting this. You can also set up integration with Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer and this basically means if you click on a link to a file Gozilla will startup and then go through the process of downloading the file. Other great additions are the ability to display a little drop target (this looks like an icon on the screen) and using this you can drag files into gozilla rather than clicking on links independently. You can schedule your downloads so say during the nght when you arent surfing the program will connect to the Internet using your dialup connection and start downloading files that you have selected.
You can also split your downloads into categories and one of my favourite features leech files , using this feature you can enter in an ftp site (or a web page) and this will show you all the files in it you can then select the files available you want to download (a real timesaver).
The only problem I have encountered with this program is the occasional crash particularly if you lose your connection and are downloading software but this may be my operating system .
