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.

"Great download manager"

April 13, 2007  |  By dani72

 |  Version: Internet Download Accelerator 5.1.2.1051

Pros

It speeds up downloads a lot. It's also great for resuming broken downloads. I like the ability to shut down the PC automatically after the download(s) are finished as it means you dont have to sit and wait untill a large file is downloaded to manually turn off the PC. I've often left files over 400mb downloading before I went to bed and didnt have to worry about the PC being left on all night wasting electricity. The site manager and download scheduler are handy too. There are regular updates and its improving all the time.

Cons

I've found that since getting Windows Vista it doesnt intercept all downloads and I have to either click on the link and select copy shortcut which may automatically launch IDA or else I have to open the program myself and click on add download (althogh it is handy that when you do click on add download the link that is in the clipboard automatically appears there).
