Advantages: Features such as multiple download of single file from mirrors and how easy it is to use and set up. Faster downloads are guaranteed
Disadvantages: None easily better than others such as Gozilla and GetRight
This is one of the best (not as well known) donwload managers you can get for free on the internet. With a very simple and eas to use this download manager like Gozilla, Getright and countless others provides you with the ability to resume your download at the point when you get bumped off.
I have tried all the managers and I've got
to say this is easily the cream of the crop.
Its simple to use and look at and set up is very easy.
On of the best features is the multiple mirror downloading feature which is slightly like Gozillas but I feel better.
This feature allows you to use the manager to search for multiple areas where the file you are downloading is (mirrors) and then the manager selects the most effficient (i.e. closest) place to start downloading and then also includes the mirrors.
This means that you end up downloading the file in chunks from many different places.
E.g. A file 20MB might be donwloaded from 3 differnent sites:
Site 1 might download 4MB
Site 2 might download 12MB
Site 3 would download the remaining 4MB
This means that you get a fast download as you don't get so bogged down by other people donwloading.
All the resume features are automatic and you can also set them manually specifying the minimum file to resume from.
The tool sits in your system tray (next to your clock in the bottom right) and can be set up to remain there or only activate on dialing your connection which is better than some of the other managers as they use up this extra RAM.
Other features which can be set up, like other managers, is to download files even when you are not next to your machine and this can be more than one file and set up so the tool doesn't stop for any prompts. This means you could even be asleep and downloading files.
All in all this is a quality download manager and I would recomend it above the rest which, believe me, I've tried. With all these smart little
features this should be the first thing on your list to download as it will speed up other downloads greatly.
