    Popular Download Managers Reviewed - Free Download Manager

    (Page 5 of 6 )

    Free Download Manager (abbreviated FDM) is one of those download managers that earned its reputation during 2006. FDM was quite unknown two years ago. However, it has received more than 30 awards. 

    Each of the three must-have features are present; it supports resuming, segmentation, and boasts amazingly compatible browser integration. It adapts extremely well and works perfectly with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Netscape, and so forth. Moreover, a separate version supports Windows Vista, too. It's quite up-to-date.

    Now let's talk about some of its outstanding features. It shows off an integrated mini multimedia player that allows the user to preview and prelisten to video and audio files during a download. Besides, it has an HTML spider that can download websites as a whole depending on your file extension configuration. BitTorrent support isn't neglected either. Oh, and it supports remote controllers too. That's comfortable, right?

    (FDM's main interface without any currently running downloads)

    Since version 2.1, a new feature was added that is simply terrific, in my opinion. I'm talking about the ability to read the comments of other FDM users about the file you are currently downloading. It's a supreme way to warn against malicious and/or useless files. It also encourages communication among users within the program window. Of course, you can leave your opinion regarding the files you download, too.

    Furthermore, Free Download Manager is a freeware and open source application released under the GNU Public License. Taking this into consideration, as well as its level of performance and superior browser integration, I am confidently rating FDM 10/10. It has evolved a lot since 2005... and right now it simply rocks!
