    Default Suggest some download managers?

    I am a 56K user. Now that I got that off my chest I feel so much better. Anyways, I was searching a couple of download/files sites and tried a few download managers:

    Download Accelerator Plus and Internet Download Manager

    I haven't tried GetRight in a long time but I noticed it has some sorta adware shit. Gator I think it is. Uck.

    Anyways, anyone know some good Download Manager apps. The key feature I am looking for is one that has the ability to add mirrors and it checks all the mirrors for the shortest latency and switches to it. Also allows for a single data stream, not multiple since 56k just doesn't make sense having multiple streams.

    Thanks for any suggestions. Peace.

    i use flashget, it has ad stuff in the vanilla version so just use ad-aware to remove it..

    works great

    tried most of them with varying results, on 56k as well & currently flashget gets my vote

    have tried lots of them and now use net vampire
    becouse it works on some sites the others dont and wont want
    to overtake your PC
    its not got some things the others have but you can run this with them if you must
    treat it as a easy simple to use programe that only works when you tell it to unlike getright gozzilla etc.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has been my favourite download manager after many years, and many different installs of countless others.

    Its the one thats failed me the least!
