Flashget is the an award winning download manager and in my view the best Windows download manager hands down. What’s more, it recently became FREEWARE!
I’ve been using this software for years and cannot recommend it enough. Check out the list of features below.
You can expect to:
- Speed up your downloads
- Have the ability to pause/resume downloads
- Manage your downloads, inlcuding control download speeds and define alternate download URLs
- The recent version also supports flash (swf) downloads.
- Upcoming versions (1.80 and above) will feature support for Bittorent downloads.
Note: This version of Flashget “calls home”, which is apparently related to the ShareURL mirror service. This is a URL sharing service that helps users simultaneously downloading a file to speed up their downloads. If you do not want this you can turn off this service from Options > Mirrors.
Version tested: 1.73
