Editors' Review

This download manager brings much more to the table than faster downloads, but it's main focus definitely delivers on making file transfers quicker. Upon installation, the program asks for your e-mail address in the hopes of sending you special offers, but you don't actually need to submit any information to use Download Accelerator Plus. Although the software is free, the trade-off is the ad that occupies the top-right portion of the interface, but it's easy to get used to. In most other respects, the tabbed main window is easy to use and navigate; we especially like the built-in player for previewing media files. The program also installs a handy toolbar in Internet Explorer and integrates with alternate browsers such as Firefox.

Increased download speeds are this Download Accelerator's bread and butter, and it doesn't disappoint, making downloads faster than other programs by almost 200 percent in most cases. Besides the common tactic of splitting files into smaller pieces, Download Accelerator Plus speeds things up by automatically seeking faster mirrors. It also can get a file simultaneously from several sites, which is useful if a particular site limits the download speed. Other useful tools include the ability to resume interrupted downloads, log onto protected sites, and schedule downloads at low traffic times for faster downloading. We appreciate the extra tools for organizing media and finding games, as well as the basic yet functional FTP client. All things considered, this feature-rich program will prove to be a valuable addition for the majority of habitual downloaders.
