Editors' Review

+

For users who download a great deal of content, there are always headaches in the process. No matter how fast your computer runs, downloading seems to slow down and complicate matters. GetGo Download Manager proved to be worthy of the task of taming the download process.

This freeware program will not be immediately noticed, as it comes as a command button on your Internet browser. But even then, this program doesn't come alive until users attempt to download music, movies, pictures, or other forms of media. A box will open asking if the user wants to use GetGo to download. From there, they are sent to a screen that shows what you are downloading, how large it is, where it comes from and how long it will take. At the bottom of the screen is a monitor of how much bandwidth this is taking. To the left is a navigation screen to look at all downloads past, present, and on hold. We appreciated the range of options for managing downloads, including picking the download folder, sorting videos into categories, and renaming files.

We were very impressed with the performance GetGo provided, as it lived up to its billing and downloaded media at a much quicker rate than expected. The program is organized in a very intuitive way and does a nice job of sorting out jobs. We highly recommend this program for any user who frequently downloads flash video files.

"Multi-faceted junkware"

May 30, 2011  |  By mikey1975777

 |  Version: GetGo Download Manager 4.7.2.1004

Pros

integrates with Firefox

Cons

installs Ask.com junk and toolbar, installs GetGo toolbar, doesn't give the option to opt out of either, changes default search to Ask.com, annoying "ghosted" arrow box floats on screen

Summary

This is a basic download manager with a lot of useless junk thrown in to make it look good. It installs a bunch of unwanted accessories, and just really doesn't work well. I wish CNET would have mentioned all the crapware.

 |  Version: GetGo Download Manager 4.7.2.1004

Pros

Works great on most of the sites that I've tried it on so far. Haven't done much yet though.

There are many sites that it doesn;t work at all on.

Summary

Tried previous version, didn't work, uninstalled. This version works a lot better, but still not on some sites. Maybe next version will have it together.
