GetRight

  • Generic Company Place Holder GetRight

GetRight is almost too powerful. This download manager has so many features, and so many advanced options, that the learning curve is daunting. The program downloads from Web and FTP servers and also handles BitTorrent downloads. It integrates with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and up, and its settings can be tweaked to capture URLs from the clipboard, so it's simple to use with other browsers as well.

In addition to the usual stopping, starting, and scheduling downloads, GetRight can handle gigabyte-sized files, accelerate downloads, recover downloads, and much more. Interested readers should go to the author's Web site to peruse the detailed documentation and FAQ.

The free trial version does not expire, and it's probably sufficient for most uses. Registering for $30 unlocks all of GetRight's features, removes any file-size limits in the trial version, and stops the reminder messages.
