Editors' reviewHere's a download tool a step above the rest. Star Downloader Pro includes a rich set of features that not only speeds downloads but also makes it easy to schedule and manage downloads. The program includes all the needed elements: good browser integration, seamless resumption of interrupted downloads, simple scheduling, and automatic sorting of files based on type or download date. We liked the program interface, as it's well-designed and intuitive. To start downloading, all you have to do is click the appropriate link in your browser (Internet Exporer, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera are supported) or copy a link to the program clipboard. A special program tool helps manage multiple downloads. For example, when downloading multiple files (such as images) from a Web page, Star Downloader extracts all the needed links, filters them, and then sets up an efficient queue for download. Overall, this is a reliable program that is a good bet for speedy downloads.
Star Downloader accelerates your downloads by splitting files into several parts and downloading them simultaneously. Speed is increased further when it chooses the fastest mirror sites. You may automatically resume broken downloads if your connection is lost or if your computer accidentally shuts down. With the scheduler, you can download files at certain times of the day. Star Downloader also may automatically connect to your ISP and hang up upon completion of downloads. An advanced category system helps you organize and manage your downloads, and an integrated unzipping utility can automatically unzip and install downloaded files. Star Downloader also integrates with your antivirus program to automatically scan files upon completion of the download. Star Downloader supports FTP, HTTP, and proxy, as well as support for more than 50 languages.
Version 1.52 features integration with Mozilla and Mozilla Firefox.
