Alternative Download Manager
LeechGet is a new download manager that is currently in beta. It's free and pretty.
It supports file splitting and pinging of other servers for faster downloads. It doesn't support dynamic file splitting, once a thread has completed it doesn't split another thread to continue downloading. It also doesn't support fetching the original file date.
Flashget has both of these features along with a better comments area. LeechGet has a small textbox on one of the download wizard dialog pages that allows you to specify a comment, but that comment isn't editable later on. Problem is, Flashget isn't free.
You seem to have not around your first mention of LeechGet, which makes it styled like a link but not behave like one.
thanks, not quite used to making posting yet...
The only problem with LeechGet is that it loves to devour your memory.
I read that here about one of the earlier version. I'm using the current version (1.0 RC3) and it takes up about 8.5M of memory. That's not too bad.
I just wish it could save the file using the server's file date.
since I'm a Linux nut, I use prozilla at the command line
I use "Getright" with the mozilla plugin. Works fine in Phoenix for me....
Star Downloader is also worth a try (http://www.stardownloader.com/) has a moz plugin and works ok
