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.

"simple to use & non-intrusive to reg. internet browsing"

July 02, 2009  |  By deven316

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.14

Pros

easy to configure
all the settings you expect to be are there

Cons

the fact you gotta pay but hey, thats not that bad of a con

Summary

first of all, i am using this program to replace another program i was using that no longer works. at first i thought i would not find a replacement that could be simple and quick as the last, until i downloaded this. the settings are easy to configure (for example you can store your rapidshare premium information), there is a download queue you can adjust, it groups files when you download them (for example compressed, music, video, etc), and importing download links can be executed through a text file or you may do batch downloads depending on what you are downloading. A+

"The Fastest Downloader Yet."

July 31, 2008  |  By knockeen

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.14

Pros

It is a very fast download manager but only a little bit ahead of Orbit Downloader. Orbit is more simple and stright forward Plus Free. My Choice.

"I took the leap, never looked back."

July 29, 2008  |  By sparkmedia

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.14

Pros

I was very skeptical of a download manager. I have a 10 MB download and 1 MB upload rate, which is extremely fast already. However, I was having trouble with one download that was moving at a snail’s pace of 80kpbs and terminating half-way after two and a half hours, with no ability to resume. I gave Internet Download Manager a shot at it and it took 11 minutes at a rate of 1400 kbps. Not only did it succeed at downloading the troubled file, but it did it in a fraction of the time. Most impressed.

Cons

I’m still exhilarated about the one download working that I haven’t found anything I don’t like. In fact, the application is very forward and upfront about what it is doing. There is no hi-jacking the browser or anything fishy going on without your knowledge and consent. It explains things clearly and concisely.
