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.

"Excellent speed and downloads very well."

January 19, 2009  |  By tlivsey

 |  Version: Internet Download Manager 5.14 build 5

Pros

Quick, complete downloads. I really like this software but my laptop didn't.

Cons

My download kept telling me the trial was over and shutting down even after I purchased the registration. I am not sure why, but I had to uninstall it (because it blocked my normal downloading ability)..

Summary

As I said, it is a good accelerator but for some reason, it did not work long term on my computer.
