Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Here'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.
