"Was fast at first now slow"

September 20, 2014  |  By gtitus09

 |  Version: Internet Download Accelerator 5.21.1.1405

Pros

Initially it was fast.
Easy to use.
Free.

Cons

Not so fast now.

Summary

when I used this the last few days it downloaded files fairly quickly. Now this morning it said it would take 20 minutes to download a 37 MB file. I tried twice to do it and the same thing, so I switched to Firefox's regular download mgr. It took 5 minutes. I don't know why it worked at first and now it doesn't, but oh well. It was free.

stooped working with Mozilla 17.0.1 and when I submitted a report to west byte their server crashed before I got a reply to my post. I have been a paid owner of the pro version for many years. this is my first major let down.
