Editors' review

This straightforward and feature-rich download manager is a good choice for active surfers and those on dial-up connections. In our tests, Internet Download Accelerator raised the download speed by up to three times. The neat interface offers several ways to start retrieving a file: clicking a link in your browser, copying the URL to the Clipboard, or dragging the download to a semitransparent floating window. The interface also displays the download speed and lets you control downloads. You can arrange retrieved files into folders depending on their extensions and sources, grab HTML pages, and peek at the contents of ZIP archives to see whether you want to download the files. The program is accessible via a system-tray icon or a browser toolbar. When running in the background, the utility doesn't take much memory. The program supports Internet Explorer, Mozilla, and Opera browsers. Dial-up users should appreciate Internet Download Accelerator's ability to automatically establish and maintain connections or to schedule downloads overnight.

    "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.
