Editors' Review

Software that promises to speed up your download is almost invariably limited by something it can't effect, namely your Internet connection, and that's the case with Download Accelerator Manager, aka DAM. But DAM does serve as a free, browser-integrated download manager. DAM lets you schedule, pause, and resume multiple downloads, which can be a big help to users who have limited bandwidth or access time, especially when downloading large files such as movies. For instance, you can schedule DAM to download files at night, when local traffic is lighter (or rates lower). To that end, DAM offers features specifically designed to make downloads easier, such as dial-up options. Many folks around the world still access the Web that way, only now they're trying to download broadband-choking files over phone lines, byte by tiny byte. For them, DAM picks up where ordinary browser-integrated download managers leave off.

DAM's setup includes the option to integrate the program with most current browsers. DAM's main points of contact consist of the user interface, which offers an interesting tree view that sorts unfinished and finished downloads by category; the optional Drop Target in the notification area; and a System Tray icon that shows quick counters when you hover the cursor, and a menu of commands and options when you right-click it. It's fairly simple to add or schedule downloads, which starts by pasting or entering the URL of a download target. Files are listed in the main view with column headings such as Time Left, Transfer Rate, and Last Try Date, and the Scheduler appears on the toolbar as well as the options menu. We clicked "Add" to initiate a download, copied and pasted a YouTube URL, selected a destination and category, and added some file info. From there we could schedule or start the download. We could also enter a user name and password for sites requiring authorization.

While DAM did a good job, in general, some of our downloads failed, though that's sometimes the case with scheduled automatic downloads. But for those users squeezing modern media through old-fashioned wires, DAM is darn handy to have around.

"It doesn't work.You need to update. Firefox has updated"

Pros

It works only if this DAM software is updated every time any browser gets updated.

Cons

It doesn't work if this DAM software doesn't update their own. If any browser gets updated, this DAM software doesn't update, then it doesn't work.

Hey! it doesn't work. you need to update your DAM software because the Mozilla firefox has been updated to new version 43.0.4. Business is always strictly business as usual.

Summary

Please...always update your DAM software during after a new release update of the Mozilla firefox and Chrome into new version. Because it doesn't work if you don't update your software.

Oh forgot something. I've just read about Mozilla firefox version 43.0.4 which have an anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-trojan, anti-inject-ads, and etc "detector". It says that your DAM version 5.0.1 on add-on "could not be verified" and it was disabled in add-on that's why I found out and realized it doesn't integrate to download anything. Then I clicked the "more information" then it brought me to the Firefox website page that your DAM software is unable to check verification for "signing" in a security guidelines.

I don't know if this means it compromises security, forces to download your spam software in order to get updates, I noticed my browser it actually freezes the system, trying to bring trojans in and my Anti-virus/anti-malware/anti-spyware detects it that says couldn't verify "signs" of security guidelines.

Please go to this Firefox site page and click this about verification of signed security guidelines - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-on-signing-in-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct. Please read them and update your DAM software version that they can verify "signing". Thanks
