JDownloader for Mac makes the process of downloading files from multiple Web sites simultaneously easier, but because it's Java-based, it doesn't blend in perfectly with Mac OS.
Free but with lots of features: JDownloader for Mac integrates with several download Web sites, including Rapidshare and Megaupload. Also, it provides automated file extraction and supports parallel stream downloads (if a Web site allows it).
CAPTCHA recognition: This is a very convenient feature that makes the download process easier. It works with almost every site, although it does not guarantee that all downloads will be successful.
Automatic file saving to assigned folders: You can configure the app to download files with specific file extensions. Moreover, you can assign separate folders for specific file types, such as MP4, MP3, WebM, and FLV.
Java-based issues: Typical of Java programs on Mac, you may encounter performance/compatibility issues while running this app. Also, it's easy to notice that this is a third-party application that hasn't been well-blended with Mac OS, at least when it comes to aesthetics -- it looks like a Windows application with the standard red-yellow-green buttons seemingly added as an afterthought.
Multitude of plug-ins/add-ons to be installed: After installing the application, you have to download numerous add-ons for specific Eeb hosts. It will be a quite lengthy process if you have a slow connection.
The Java-based JDownloader does not feel as snappy as you would expect a Mac app to be. If you download files from several Web sites, spending time to learn this app could be worth it. But if you only download from YouTube, SoundCloud, and a few other Web sites only, you should look for another free downloader.
