Download with Free Download Manager

25 Nov 2007 | Useful |  35 comments

I have mentioned earlier in this post that I have developed a liking for open source softwares, and would like to share my findings with the uninformed.

It has been quite a while since I last used a download manager apart from the browser’s own default file downloader, seldom download big files that would require me to use a download manager. For fileplanet.com downloads, I use their down Download Manager.

When I revisited newgrounds.com again, I felt an urge to use a download manager to acquire the .swf files off that site. I have always been a collector in the physical realm, hence I am not much different in the cyberspace when it comes to acquiring files.

And so I google-ed for the key words “Download Manager wiki”, checked out the comparison table in wikipedia and finally decided to use this “Free Download Manager”. Without further delay, the details:

Official Home Page:

Download link:

Main Features:

  • Increase your download speed and resume broken downloads
  • Flash video download
  • Enjoy easy file sharing
  • HTTP/FTP/BitTorrent support
  • GNU General Public License
  • Enjoy safer and more rewarding downloading

So far I have found this Free Download Manager to be quite okay to use. I have download several .swf files off newgrounds.com using this. Does anyone else still use Download Managers?

    I think this is the first time they integrated a download manager into Firefox, right? 😉

    Can download flash videos from YouTube or not? 🙄
