Editors' Review

+

This download manager application features a large "Tell a Friend" button, but we don't send bad news to our friends. TD Download Accelerator's interface is clean, simple, and inviting, and that's the end of the good news. From there, it goes downhill fast.

A basic Add-URL command shows many accurate URLs as invalid. An accelerator doesn't download much faster than your browser. A Help file with clear screenshots but muddy text doesn't inspire novices. Configuration options that don't seem to alter functionality won't win friends from advanced users. In short, this utility doesn't live up the expectations of any level user. A promised integration with Internet Explorer never appeared, nor did automatic downloading of certain file types.

If you have a very specific URL pointing to a very specific file type, then you can use this utility. It won't be much faster or more convenient than your browser, but it will download the file. However, there are many utilities in this genre that download faster and have more robust options.
