Editors' Review

Don't let the dull name fool you: Internet Download Manager is a full-featured package that handles downloading tasks with aplomb. It conveniently integrates into your browser, even if you use Mozilla or Opera.

It automatically sorts incoming files by file type and puts them in the appropriate folder. Most importantly, it supercharges download speeds (it doubled ours). Its windowed interface is clean and easy to understand. Power users can take advantage of the command line interface to resume file transfers, schedule downloads, connect through dial-up, or log on to password-protected sites. Experienced users also can limit the number of connections, the download speeds for specific sites, and even create an exception list to block specific, user-defined sites.

Other features include automatic virus checking and the ability to download all files linked to a page. The new version has a Web spider that can analyze a site and retrieve, for example, all the images on it.

Internet Download Manager strikes us as a natural choice for users in need of a trusty transfer tool.

"Super Great!!!!"

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.09 build 4

Pros

NOT ONLY it speeds up direct downloads, somehow, this program has tweaked my internet connection that even the speed of my torrent downloads has increased at least FOURFOLD!

Cons

Too reliable that you'd likely to keep wasting your data allowance just for the sake of download!

"Fantastic! It really works!"

June 23, 2007  |  By Greg Robertson

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.09 build 4

Pros

I bought an HP m8000n desktop computer last week and I love it. But it was downloading at just under 100 kbps and it would often stop after about 10 mb and it wouldn't start again. So frustrating! I used the download manager for a 120 mb file. It downloaded at an average of about 197 kbps (up to 207 kbps) and stopped twice, but the stops were only for a few seconds and it resumed again. It also has a nice interface and options. I'm buying it!

"Better that DAP,Definitely the BEST!!!"

June 20, 2007  |  By redlamborsche

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.09 build 4

Pros

Fastest(other accelerators-->80KBps, IDM-->100-110KBps).Ram friendly unlike DAP.Believe it or not,it saves me from those "autodownload" virus -beacause IDM filters every .exe file comming from the net,so i can refuse download those obvious viruses. Tried almost every download managers yet i still return to using IDM.

Cons

There's a bug when my pc wakes up from hibernation, the icon in thr system tray disappears...oh well it's just a small thing.

What's new in version 5.09 build 4
Version 5.09 build 4 shows a dialog if a site does not allow requesting the same file twice and if the site sends a web page to IDM instead of a download. This is the case when the browser sends the first request, then IDM takes over the download and sends the second, and the replies from the site are different. The dialog shows instructions how to download the file with IDM.
