Note: This review addresses v1.9.6 of the software.

If you live to download, here's a great freebie for you. This download manager will speed up your downloads, keep you safe, and help you organize everything you've downloaded. It speeds up your downloads by using multithreading, and lets you find downloads via many different protocols, including HTTP, FTP, eMule, and others. It's also great at file management, showing you all the files you've downloaded, including information about each. You'll even be able to delete downloaded files from directly in the program.

Making it even more useful is that it integrates with your browser, so whenever you download it jumps into action. It will also pause and resume downloads, and works with your anti-virus software to scan for viruses as it downloads.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
