Internet Download Manager -Accelerate and Manage your downloads

Internet Download Manager is a full-featured utility that handles downloading tasks with ease. It conveniently integrates into your browser, even if you use Firefox, IE or Opera. It can increase the download speeds considerably, resume and schedule downloads. The error recovery and resume capability of IDB is comprehensive and is possibly the best amongst all. Also, it has a smart download logic accelerator that features intelligent dynamic file segmentation and safe multipart downloading technology to accelerate your downloads. The segmentation of downloads happen dynamically during the download process rather than before the start of the download.


Internet Download Manager supports proxy servers, ftp and http protocols, firewalls, redirects, cookies, directories with authorization, MP3 audio and MPEG video content processing, and a large number of directory listing formats. IDM integrates seamlessly into Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape, MSN Explorer, AOL, Opera, Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Firebird, Avant Browser, MyIE2, and all other popular browsers to automatically handle your downloads. You can also drag and drop files, or use Internet Download Manager from command line. Internet Download Manager can dial your modem at the set time, download the files you want, then hang up or even shut down your computer when it’s done.

Its windowed interface is clean and easy to understand. It also includes automatic virus checking and the ability to download all files linked to a page. I find IDM most useful for downloading streaming videos. Using IDM you will be able to save all those great videos right onto your hard drive with such ease you’ll be amazed. Once installed anytime you watch a video online, a “download this video” button will appear.


With just a click you’ll be downloading your videos from many of the top video sharing sites, like YouTube and MySpace TV. The download will proceed in the background even if you pause or stop watching. And you can download more than one video at the same time.
It has been rated 5 stars from the editors of CNET and many other sites. You can try IDM for free for 30 days.
