Editors' review

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.
