Editors' review

This download utility is surprisingly attractive and full-featured for a freeware product, and its operation couldn't be more straightforward. To download a file, just click a link in your browser or drag it onto the program's tiny, semitransparent window.

In our comparison tests, Free Download Manager beat out Opera's download manager 85Kbps to 53Kbps. Its automation features also are very good. Like other managers, it can automatically dial a modem, start a download, or shut down the PC. Unlike many of them, it also can change the number of connections depending on download speed, or disconnect and shut down the computer if a file is unavailable.

If you want to boost your download speed for free, this utility is certainly worth a try.

    Version: Free Download Manager 3.9.4 build 1472

    Pros

    current version works with firefox.
    it's pretty fast.

    Cons

    it's not currently detecting the youtube videos correctly, so it's not downloading them.

    Summary

    works on most websites, even on youtube but not at this point. have been using it for years on and off, i always come back to it. as a main downloader, or an alternative one, you can't lose.
