Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This download manager doesn't offer many extra features, but we liked its clean design and straightforward interface. NetLeech is integrated into Internet Explorer (but not Mozilla Firefox and Opera), so to download a file, all you need to do is click on the appropriate link in your browser. This freeware is well organized, filing downloads into folders automatically based on file type. Another handy feature we discovered during testing is the ability to switch file folders during download (in case you notice there's not enough disk space, for example). While the program isn't able to schedule downloads, considering its other useful features, we weren't too concerned. Overall, if you're looking for a reliable download manager, this freeware option is a good pick.

Developer's Description

NetLeech is a download manager, organizer, and accelerator. It supports both HTTP and FTP protocols, proxy servers, file splitting, broken connection handling, file filters, automatic dial up/shutdown, file relocation, and detailed download process information. NetLeech can be invoked directly from Internet Explorer and other IE-based browsers. Version 3.0 has two modes: Basic (default) and Ultra. In the Ultra mode NetLeech is extended by an FTP browser, scheduler, Internet search, and a basket. In this version, there are a few bug fixes and small additions made.
