Editors' Review

+
Promising to download files by type from any Web site, Medusa's real specialty is image retrieval. Managing the scope of a job is relatively easy, but excluding URLs from the download queue is possible only by restricting keywords, not by entering exact addresses. Medusa will retrieve files through up to 10 connections at once (not exactly spectacular for broadband users), and it supports automatic login. The image-preview function is speedy and useful. Medusa probably won't suit dial-up users because it lacks automatic reconnect and doesn't schedule processes. Downloads will resume if interrupted, but the program doesn't save jobs to be run again in the future. Medusa is a decent choice for those with high-speed connections looking to automate large, nonrecurring, file-retrieval jobs.

"Buy Webminer Instead!"

June 19, 2004  |  By czdave

 |  Version: Medusa 1.2

Summary

This is a good program but, it's lacking all lot of things people had requested before they made it like saving and being able to download different web pages at once. Try the Webminer program. Webminer let's you do that and stop downloading where you like and remembers what's been downloaded. Webminer also seperates folders if you like just like Medusa and Webminer makes a printable log of the activities that happened. Webminer will save a lot of time. It's like set it and forget it. Medusa just needs to make there program like Webminers and then I would consider buying it...I doubt they will.
