Download Managers

Recommended Posts

Dumb question but does anyone a good recommendation for a safe Download Manager?

 

I have an intermittent wireless connection sometimes and downloads tend to get interupted sometimes.

I sometimes get a error message concerning my DL manager when closing windows. I have no idea why this happens but I too need a better one.

Site rippers aka download managers are the dirty underbelly of the internet ... but the good news is we'll be adding partial file download resume to the site on the next software upgrade. From the looks of it we'll be able to select member groups who have access to it as it's a rather intensive addition. We'll keep you posted.

Thanks for all the tips, gents!

 

I'll check those out.

 

Nesher, based on your recommendation I will take another look at that one. And all the others too.

 

(of course, for an old Cold War Warrior like me to take the recommendation of "Soviet Commissar from the Ukranian Air Force......)

 

:biggrin:

 

:wink:

 

Thanks again all.

Paranoid? Hehe... Try a mix of Firefox 3 [+ NoScript (blocks javascript and flash unless I allow them) + AdBlock Plus (kills banners stone dead)] and COMODO personal firewall [FREE! monitors every sneeze from network access to one application trying to create a .dll file on HD]. After a week of having to confirm all types of actions for new applications you'll beg for something simpler :wink:
