KooLoader is a download manager that emphasizes simplicity and ease of use. It supports multiple simultaneous downloads, accelerated downloads, segmenting, and browser integration. We tested KooLoader in Windows XP and Windows 7.
As with many free tools, you can opt to install a third-party toolbar, but there's no other adware. We chose not to install something called the Gossiper Toolbar. The program's interface and functionality are similar to those of other download management utilities, with basic control icons for adding and deleting URLs, pausing and resuming downloads, and accessing the program's options. There are separate windows for downloads in progress and finished downloads, and the target URL of our download appeared in the top window when we clicked on it. We opened the Options dialog, clicked the check box to associate KooLoader with Internet Explorer, opened a browser window, and navigated to a download. When we right-clicked the link, the context menu showed an option to download the file with KooLoader, and a detailed properties dialog opened when we started the download. Right-clicking the program's icon in the System Tray let us instantly pause and resume downloads and open the program's interface. The tabbed Options dialog also gave us access to the scheduling, file segmenting, and language options. We tried initiating several downloads at once, and KooLoader handled them easily.
There are several similar freeware download managers out there, and they're based on essentially the same codes and functionality. They differ largely in ease of use. KooLoader is as easy to use as any of them, and we recommend it to anyone interested in augmenting his or her download capability.
Your Downloads Live Up to Your Expectations! KooLoader is an all in one download manager software that guarantees a worthy Internet downloading experience through the addition of an adaptive download accelerator, segmented downloads for acceleration, an astounding number of simultaneous downloads and more. The program offers support for Internet Explorer, Firefox. Anytime you need to download something online, copying the URL of that file will prompt KooLoader to automatically paste it into its main window and simply hitting OK in the small window that will be displayed instantly, will start the download. KooLoader keeps it straight and simple not a bunch of useless features that would only crowd your application and encumber your experience with it. Thats why it sticks to fast downloads of flash from the Internet, allowing the setting of portable version to use on different computers, smart file management and multilanguage support. A feature which will come in very handy is the Scheduler: with it you can download at times you chose and specify. Apart from this you have the ability to establish the maximum number of segments and the maximum number of simultaneous downloads (up to 99!). KooLoader allows you to use when downloading even links stored in you clipboard, offering support also for both protocols HTTP and FTP. User interface is as clean as it can be providing you all the features in the easiest way possible. The offerings go on comprehensive error recovery and resume capability are included. This mean the ability to resume broken downloads that had been interrupted on account of lost connections, network breakdown or system shutdowns saving files you downloaded up to then.
