GetGo Download Manager is an excellent tool for Internet users that want a less complicated download process. Its integration with various browsers as well as its great design makes GetGo a useful application.

Pros

Good interface: GetGo's layout is organized, attractive, and easy to understand. The sidebar gives you quick access to downloads based on category and history, so finding content is not complex.

Helpful features: The Internet Explorer and Firefox toolbars included with GetGo Download Manager are not obtrusive and offer tools that assist in finding content. Downloads can be stopped and resumed at any time, which is much better than the standard features of most Internet browsers.

Cons

Misses expectations: The latest version of GetGo promises to be compatible with YouTube, but in our tests, it wasn't. You will see that the one-click download feature does not work as advertised, either.

Slow speeds: We downloaded a variety of media files with GetGo and found that our browser's standard downloader was often faster than GetGo. Download speeds for large files, such as programs, were on par with the standard browser, so this software doesn't offer better speed in most cases.

Bottom Line

GetGo Download Manager is best for those with a high volume of downloads that need to be paused and resumed. Although GetGo is well built, a similar application, Flash Get, offers instant antivirus scanning on all downloads. GetGo can be customized to do this but requires that you install third-party software, so we would like to see this feature included in a future update. Download GetGo if you want organized and easy downloading, but be aware that the download speed may not always be the best.
