    Popular Download Managers Reviewed

    (Page 1 of 6 )

    These days download managers are considerably neglected. This is because of the tremendous speed increases of our Internet connections — we now measure our bandwidth in megabits instead of the old-fashioned kilobits. This is complemented by the evolution of file transfer methods, resulting in new protocols.

    Contrary to popular belief, the HTTP protocol still dominates. Due to its very nature, all web browsers have the capability to support HTTP protocols. Therefore, it's the widespread standard on which a ton of sites are still based. When a site supports HTTP file downloads, it basically guarantees that nobody will ever struggle.

    What's the most frustrating misfortune that can happen during a download? Oh, it's the infamous accident - termination of the transfer because of low speed and poor connection quality. It's crucial to understand that a connection can fail for numerous reasons and having gazillions of megabits with close-to-zero ping delays won't necessarily prevent it from happening.

    Keeping this in mind, download managers are definitely not passé, obsolete, behind the times, purposeless software applications. They pretty much serve their purpose right now. That purpose is avoiding transfer stoppage accidents by adding "resume" features and eliminating the possibility of file corruptions.

    Throughout this article we're going to describe some of the must-have features of a download manager, what we should look for when trying to pick one, and ultimately we'll review a few of the popular download manager applications. You can already anticipate comprehensive comparisons, eh? You bet!

    This being said, let's begin. Enjoy the ride!
