Editors' Review

Leech for Mac is a useful tool for those who download a large number of files and are tired of being at the mercy of their browser. From easy start/stop pausing to a secondary interface that won't interrupt your downloads if the browser crashes, Leech is a solution for a number of download issues and it works very smoothly without taking up much space or too many resources on your computer.

Installation of Leech is very fast, moving a small file to your Applications folder. You will need to verify its source before opening it in newer versions of OS X, but after that you can start using it immediately. Just drag and drop a URL into the interface and it will automatically start the download process. It works with any properly validated download link, as well as photos and HTML files. You can change a few things such as where files download and you can set a timer to turn the app off and shut down after the current queue is finished. Download speed was not affected at all in our tests and the app doesn't take up many resources -- both big pluses for this type of tool.

If you need a third-party download solution that won't be at the mercy of your browser or other bulky software that can crash on occasion, download Leech for Mac. It runs fast, is free to try up to 25 times, and it allows you much greater control over the files you download without being too cumbersome. This is a great all-around tool.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Leech for Mac 2.2.
