DownShift

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder DownShift

This download manager starts with the basics, letting you schedule, pause, and resume downloads. Other features include user name and password storage, several file management options that let you store downloads in different folders, and FTP searching. The vendor says that it speeds downloads, and that does seem to be the case.

If you still use a modem, you'll likely be thrilled: DownShift schedules dial-ups, assigns bandwidth, supports multiple phone numbers, and more.
