Editors' Review

Internet Download Manager gives you the tools to download many types of files from the Internet and organize them as you see fit. You can categorize each file as you download it, and then access all downloads right from the app's main interface.

Pros

Speedy: Most short video files are downloaded almost instantly. As soon as you click "Download," a message pops up telling you the process is complete. You can then play the video immediately, or return to your browser to find more clips.

Browser integration: Since this app integrates with your browser, it can automatically detect when a downloadable file is present on a Web page and inserts a Download button onto the page. All you have to do is click the button and enter a description to begin the downloading process.

Contextual help: If you get stuck at any point while you're using the program, you can press "F1" to bring up a Help topic for the area of the program that you're in.

Cons

Clunky interface: The main interface of this app gets the job done, but it doesn't have the most intuitive setup. Novice users should have no trouble completing basic downloads, but to take advantage of some of the more advanced features or to change the preferences, you need to have a little bit of technical know-how.

Bottom Line

This is a good basic download manager, with a nice set of features, although it could be organized a little better.

"This is the best software I ever used"

October 21, 2016  |  By John Sr Peterson

2016-10-21 12:42:43  |  By John Sr Peterson

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.26 build 7

Pros

5 times download speed acceleration
Scheduler to have downloads run during night time
Grabber to download files from web sites automatically
Video download feature shows download buttons next to videos in the Internet. You can now download and save all videos to your local disk
. They sell 3 copies for $19.95 each for lifetime license. But you can purchase one-year license for as low as $9.95 per computer. This is not expensive keeping in mind all benefits you will get. Also the program is proved to be clean, no viruses, malware, adware, spyware or anything like that. The company released first version of IDM in 2001, so it means a thing, and IDM is still the best on the market.

Cons

The interface is outdated, but I managed to solve it by downloading W10 skin from IDM official web site

Summary

This program is a king of all download managers. It's small and it can be downloaded and installed quickly. The distribution package is clean, no malware, no viruses, I verified it on virustotal before installing. Then it integrates into your browser. I used Firefox and I received a message that IDM had been successfully integrated into Firefox. After that you can do the work you do. Once you have a file to download, IDM comes to the scene and starts working. It takes the download from browser and does the download job itself. Nothing unusual? Not exactly! Now look at the download speed, Oh my God, it's 5 times more than in the browser. I get 1MB/s in Firefox and 5MB/s in IDM. Wow! Also you can schedule downloads for night time to achieve better speed and while you sleep. It also has a grabber to download sites or files from sites to your computer automatically if you need it. BUT this is not ALL it can do. The best feature ever is video downloading. This feature is a gem, it shows "download this video" or "download this audio" buttons when you are playing a video in the Internet. So if your Internet is slow to play in HD, you can switch player to HD and download HD video with IDM in a matter of minutes. Then relax. Now you can play it anytime in best quality from your local disk. Imagine, all your favorite shows and movies can now be saved to your local disk and played as you like. After one week of use, I purchased 3 copies of IDM for my laptop, work and home computers.

Updated on Oct 21, 2016

I had a problem using IDM in Chrome later today. I wrote to IDM support line and they replied me in several hours with instructions how to solve the problem. You need to have IDM extension installed and be enabled in Chrome browser. They sent me clear instructions, and I was able to resolve the problem quickly. Thank you for quick response. IDM software, IDM suppor,t and the service are all great. Hi from Greece, everyone!

"Worst piece of Software I've ever installed in my Life"

September 22, 2016  |  By Blaster_Worm

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 6.26 build 3

Pros

None to be found.

Cons

Tonec's internet download manager is by FAR and AWAY THE Most expensive download manager in existence today. And, That is for just ONE licence. God Help you if you have more than one device in your home.

They cheat and Steal other people's technology. There is not a single thing that Internet Download Manager utilizes in its software that they didn't lift from the Original copyright holder. NOTHING unique. In fact, you can find it ALL in Free programs.

What we think is worse by far is the fact that it is Continually "dialing home" without permission. Often, several times a day. It has no Permission to do this, without the equipment owner's consent. It does this Regardless of if you have the free or the Paid edition. They have specific backdoors they have inserted into your computer so that they can do certain updates, without your permission, but mostly to make sure you aren't trying to use it on more than 1 device. This is particularly Shady. You CANNOT turn it off. Also Hijacks

Summary

Worst piece of Garbage software ever created.

Updated on Sep 23, 2016

And, Good Luck getting this thing Uninstalled after it leaves remnants all over in your Registry. I'm Really surprised the Antivirus companies don't catch this as a Virus.

Pros

don't remember

Cons

Evidently my trial or whatever (really don't remember) has expired and I'm not even sure if I've ever used this program. But now it interrupts my browsing on the internet LITERALLY every two minutes with a dialogue box trying to get me to register. I'm not exaggerating!

Summary

Deleting!
