    "Best download accelerator"

    March 27, 2014   |   By vainPalidan

    Version: Orbit Downloader 4.1.1.18

    Pros

    Fastest download speeds to max out my 50 Mbps connection with quickly maxing out the download speed at start times. It is reliable to restart uncompleted downloads and add multiple mirror sites to improve download speeds.

    It has a great interface for organizing your downloads and is clear to show what you are downloading.
    Lightweight program with useful settings such as scheduling, proxy, passwords for sites, virus scanning (your own program), and exclusion for sites which don't work well with download accelerators.

    Cons

    The installation has adware or freeware included, but can easily be avoided by choosing not to install them. It's the user's fault for not checking what they are installing. There are also ads within the program, but they are not intrusive.

    Summary

    I've used this program for a long time and it has served me well. It works better than popular add-ons like DownThemAll!.
    But since 4.1.0.9, when using the FlashGot add-on, there pops up an unnecessary window. Other than using the orbitmxt.dll from 4.1.0.9, I will see if removing certain integrations with the Firefox browser will fix this.
    Oh and the FlashGot add-on has become necessary as the developers have not been updating this program, and files don't open directly from the Firefox browser by clicking on them otherwise.

    I've always liked how the program pops up with the open and open folder button when the download finishes. But goes away after a few seconds.


    The cons are negligible because they are easily circumvented, and the fact that this program is by far the best download accelerator available.

    "I used to give this 5/5 but it now has virus code"

    December 31, 2013   |   By jezzman1

    Version: Orbit Downloader 2.7.9

    Pros

    worked quite well, didn't crash too much unless overloaded, you had to know a bit about FTP and peer connections maybe to get the really fast downloads, but overall, having a good amount of control and ability to resume downloads helped LOADS. I used to get things like 500MB MP3 mixes / videos and this was great, also streaming a movie you could ask it to D/L as well so you could watch it offline later...

    Cons

    you have to be aware of space though because it stashed your streams and incomplete d/loads in an obscure place - search all files *.* and look for incomplete downloads that you recognize / dates of downloads and you can kinda hunt them down that way. Also not ALL files support resume! so you have to know a little bit about FTP and servers etc. but if you do... you'll be OK. or learn.

    Summary

    this used to be a must for me. it still is. after a re-install to win 8 and now a backgrade to win 7, I need this orbit thingy to get all my driverfiles etc. as well as all my bits and pieces for programming. Orbit used to be the one for all this. In fact I can get all the URLs from my old installation of XP etc. and go thru what I d/loaded in the past and maybe whack 'em into my new orbit install? BUT I WON'T. WHY? I HEAR THERE'S VIRUS / SPYWARE CODE IN THE LASTEST RELEASE OF ORBIT. BE CAREFUL SINCE AVG or NORTON etc. WON'T PICK THIS UP. I'M GONNA BE v.CAREFUL WITH THIS FROM NOW ON. I NEED A DOWNLOAD HELPER URGENTLY BUT THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE MANY ABOUT NOW! LOOK FOR OLDSOFTWARE.com or whatever it's called...?

    "Orbit Downloader contains DDoS trojan"

    August 23, 2013   |   By FierceGuppy

    Version: Orbit Downloader 4.1.1.18

    Pros

    The large security breach overshadows any positives.

    Cons

    ESET's security team reports that Orbit Downloader contains a DDoS trojan. It's been there for a while and ESET goes into the delivery method in detail, too.

    http://www.welivesecurity.com/2013/08/21/orbital-decay-the-dark-side-of-a-popular-file-downloading-tool/

    Summary

    Don't use this tool until its developers, Innoshock, have removed the trojan AND have offered an explanation.

    "Poorly Written"

    June 26, 2013   |   By flyingmonkeys7

    Version: Orbit Downloader 4.1.1.18

    Pros

    It seems to work.

    Cons

    Software poorly written. Behavior is bizarre and customizable. If you click a download, ODM creates a new tab with a non information message. Worthless and inefficient. I would prefer option to open queue on initiation of download.

    Software not maintained. Forums not maintained, full of spam.

    Lots of complaints abouy malware. Norton didn't flag. Since I didn't like software, I deleted and manually scrubbed registry.

    Watzup with CNET endorsing this crap? They should have panned it on performance and support. Bad CNET.

    Summary

    Crapware, not supported. You're on your own if you decide to use.
