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. Version 5.11 build 5 added FLV grabber that can be used to download videos from YouTube, Google Video, MySpaceTV, and other popular sites.

"MUST HAVE!!!"

December 06, 2007  |  By pabl011

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.11 build 8

Pros

I have been using IDM for many years. It has always been one of the first to be loaded on new OS installs. And given that they havenĀ“t charged more for upgrades over the years, this is probably my best software buy ever.

The support is very good, prompt responses and excellent backup support. Updates over the years were continuously improving this software, now they come rarely.

I doubt that anyone will regret buying this software.

"Fastest DLM there is."

December 03, 2007  |  By StrightArrow

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.11 build 8

Pros

Fastest DLM there is. It uses multiple ports to speed up the download.

You can specify where you want the download to go:

i.e. Desktop, Documents or Special Folder just once or from now until redirected.

It keeps tract of all your downloads so if it's interrupted you can continue, or if it is lost you can find it.

You can use your 'CTRL' or 'ALT' keys to force take over or allow site to manage download or list not to download from a specified site.

Use your antivirus to automatically scan your downloads.

And the list goes on. Happy downloading!
