While this program earns a few brownie points for being open source, it doesn't stand out in terms of features among freeware options. To download files, you simply click on the appropriate link in your browser (Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox are supported) or copy a link to the program Clipboard. The interface is fairly basic (and even looks a bit amateur) but most functions are easy to find and use. While TrueDownloader includes a basic scheduler to log off the Net after downloading is complete, it doesn't offer batch downloads or even automatic file sorting. During testing, we ran into some stability problems. While browsing a downloaded ZIP file, the program crashed. Overall, while this is an adequate program for downloading, we'd like to see more features in this freeware option.
