The Internet Download Accelerator is designed to help you quickly find and download videos, music, games and more. While it proved very easy to user, but the search feature didn't always find files even when we searched for videos we knew were on the site.
The interface presents as a file directory, much like Windows Explorer. In the left pane, you can see the main categories, All Downloads, Top Downloads, and Status, and easily drill down to see items in these categories. You can also set up your own categories to help you manage the files you download. All of the main actions to start, stop, or pause recording are available from the program's main toolbar as well, so it proved easy to manage items that you are currently adding. Depending on the file size the download time will vary, but a three minute video took only a little over a minute in our tests. We did like that Internet Download Accelerator integrates with your Internet browser to make searches easier, but the program didn't always return results even if we knew the item was available online. Less experienced users might need more guidance than is offered in the very basic Help page, but the publisher does offer technical support if you run into any issues.
You shouldn't experience any problems while downloading this or installing it. It's a very simple process. This software is free and we'd recommend it to any user who frequently downloads files from the Internet.
Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Internet Download Accelerator 5.13.3. The trial version is limited to 30 days.
