Stardownloader is a download accelerator that speeds up downloads, by braking down the download into different sectors and downloading the simultaneously. In my opinion its okay but not top trumps it has good power to download quickly, but there are other download accelerators that are the same or better then stardownloader. The good thing about this program is the easy friendly use that the stardownloader offers. The speed is good but then so is many other download accelerators. I feel that this program is just showing off with the customisable themes and cool looking loading bars. There is no real power behind the costume of good looking loading bars, (like a TVR with no engine). This just doesn't do it for me sorry, but if you need a quick fix to accelerate you're download then go for it but if you want the best look to my other review of DAP downloader enjoy.
This is by far the BEST downloader I have ever used. (And I have tried MANY)Star Downloader is a download accelerator that can increase download speeds by up to 400 percent. The acceleration is achieved by splitting the file being downloaded into several parts and downloading these parts at the same time. You can split up to even 1000 parts if you like ( and if your procesor is fast enough :D).
Download speeds are further increased by downloading the file from the fastest mirror sites.You may automatically resume broken downloads if your connection is lost or if your computer accidently shuts down. With the scheduler, you may download files at certain times of the day. Star Downloader may also automatically connect to your ISP and hangup upon completion of downloads. An integrated unzipping utility can automatically unzip and install downloaded files. Star Downloader also integrates with your antivirus program to automatically scan files upon completion of the download. Star Downloader supports FTP and HTTP. Proxy is also supported.
Easy to use , integrates to IE, and can initiate a download by copying addy to clipboard.
A real 10 beetwen 1-10 if you like simple to the point software without extra garbage.
