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.

"Very fast downloading"

September 02, 2008  |  By netshape28

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.14 build 3

Pros

I downloaded many download managers to test out their speed. I downloaded Reget, GetRight Pro, FlashGet, and IDM 5.14.3. I downloaded a 500 MB file with all of these download managers. FlashGet had a 180KB rate, Reget with 184, and IDM with 214.

Cons

Interface is a little boring and gray.

Summary

Great download manager with speed that surpassed most download managers. I tried FlashGet, GetRight Pro, FlashGot, IE Download Manager, and ReGet Deluxe. This download manager, IDM 5.14.3, was the fastest. If you want a good download manager with great speed, this product is for you.
