Let's share here about your favourite download accelerator program that you use at home/office. Let's review some of the freewares available. I am on a look out for one such program. But i find they are paid softwares.

Thanks for all the replies. It seems that evey body in the forum, likes flashget. I was trying the Download Accelerator Plus(dap) all these days. The free version has advertisements being shown during downloads.But i will also try this flashget now.

I use Free Download Manager when in windoze, it gives awesome speeds.When in Linux I use D4X, it a good one with scheduling capabilities , auto mirror search , etc and other goodies.

i liked its interface when i used it. but flashget's integration with firefox and IE is pretty awesome.leechget had one good feature. throttling each download's speed. flashget cant do that... :)

Getright is free. you only have to put up with some 10 sec counter sometimes.

Has been Flashget for me. Thankfully though, Vista's browser itself has basic resume capability, for those times when i need to use IE and download via it.
