Internet Download Manager is an excellent download accelerator that will care of all your downloads from the moment you install it on your PC.
No need to lift a finger
You can add new downloads from the Internet Download Manager interface, but it's more usual to let it capture links. This means that every time you click on a certain file type (which can be specified through configuration options), Internet Download Manager will handle the download itself rather than letting the browser do the job. Everything is automatic: no changing from one app to another, no copying and pasting, no hassle at all.
Once Internet Download Manager captures the link, you can either download the file right away or save it for later, which can be a good alternative if you need all of your bandwidth for the moment and plan to leave the computer on during the night. Downloads can be classified into custom categories before starting them and can also be resumed if the connection is lost or broken.
Internet Download Manager's configuration menu displays a wide range of functions and tools devoted to handling your downloads, such as checking files for viruses with your own antivirus or limiting the amount of bandwidth used by the program. There’s also support for server authentication and proxy, FTP and HTTPS servers.
Speedy downloads - if your router's up to the job
Internet Download Manager does accelerate downloads, although it all depends on your internet connection. That is, don’t expect to download at the speed of light if you’re still using one of those old-fashioned 56K modems. Internet Download Manager achieves quite satisfying download rates by using multiple thread connections with servers.
A good program from another era
Internet Download Manager is a solid program that does what it says on the tin. It accelerates and manages downloads so that the process is as quick and painless as possible.
That said, these days most people have faster internet, so the effect of the app will be less noticeable. Even so, if you're a heavy downloader struggling to manage a slow internet connection, give it a try - it might just be the boost you're looking for.
