Editors' Review

by   / April 16, 2014

Internet Download Manager gives you the tools to download many types of files from the Internet and organize them as you see fit. You can categorize each file as you download it, and then access all downloads right from the app's main interface.

Pros

Speedy: Most short video files are downloaded almost instantly. As soon as you click "Download," a message pops up telling you the process is complete. You can then play the video immediately, or return to your browser to find more clips.

Browser integration: Since this app integrates with your browser, it can automatically detect when a downloadable file is present on a Web page and inserts a Download button onto the page. All you have to do is click the button and enter a description to begin the downloading process.

Contextual help: If you get stuck at any point while you're using the program, you can press "F1" to bring up a Help topic for the area of the program that you're in.

Cons

Clunky interface: The main interface of this app gets the job done, but it doesn't have the most intuitive setup. Novice users should have no trouble completing basic downloads, but to take advantage of some of the more advanced features or to change the preferences, you need to have a little bit of technical know-how.

Bottom Line

This is a good basic download manager, with a nice set of features, although it could be organized a little better.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 6.35.1

Version 6.35 build 1:
  • Added the recognition of proxies in browsers and its automatic usage in IDM when IDM cannot download directly. The recognition works for all VPN extensions in Firefox, and for some VPN extensions in Google Chrome.
  • Added a feature to set "User-Agent" header for manually added downloads. You can do it in IDM Options -> "Downloads" Tab. The settings of antiviral software were moved to a separate dialog to simplify "Downloads" tab.
  • Found the cause of "403 Forbidden" error when downloading some videos and made a workaround
  • Updated the new feature to download from file sharing web sites
  • Added a new feature to improve downloading from sharing and other websites that generate temporary links that can be requested one time only. If IDM discovers such web site, it offers to send a report, and requests updated download rules for this web site from IDM servers. Because IDM has a large number of users, we plan to receive many reports and update this database quickly.
  • Added "Del" key to special keys to prevent downloading with IDM because previous keys ("Ctrl", "Alt", "Shift") that we offered were reserved by browsers for other purposes
  • Improved video recognition in web players
  • Fixed all known bugs
