    download accelerator plus is full of spyware and virtually impossible to get rid of. i still cant download ANYTHING in firefox now that i uninstalled it. i have to use netscape or opera. PLEASE TAKE THIS CRAPPY DOWNLOAD OFF THIS SITE! I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT CRAP FROM IT.

    Get no argument from me on that one.

    I am sticking with Download Express. No crap attached with it, and integrates smoothly with Firefox. AND it is free.

    kol_indian, that is a dumb argument.
    The StarDownloader costs NOTHING in the first place and integrates with every browser. Best of all, there is absolutely NO adware or spyware in it.
    WHY do you still insist on putting up with crap adware riddled downloaders?

    Am I right in thinking that Star Downloader might be charged for in future? Seem to remember reading something about it recently.

    I've not seen anything about it recently. But if they are, you better get it while it's still free :)

    Ronin, whilst that looks good enough, it costs!

    Have to agree with th3mightyd8 that it really does not make much difference if you are using a 56k modem. I have tried several of the download program (which includes most of the ones mentioned above) and find that it all comes down to how busy your server is at the time. Of course you can use a different server but you never know what the status of their system is at any given time. Just fell back to regular old download manager provided with my software.

    No need to answer to your own post when you already have nothing to say!

    If I really need a download manager I use Getright.

    I am a firefox user and trying to find a good plug-in that will do what get right basically does.

    i didn't read the whole forum probably because i am lazy but i always find internetdownloadmanager to be the best. normal windows downloader goes at like 2kbps compared to internet download manager at about 15kbps. (yes i know, my connection sucks quite a bit but is still quite good for africa)

    Personally, I don't like DAP's way of doing business. All I want is the download manager, nothing else. I don't need a bunch superfluous junk

    Firstly, Your problem has NOTHING to do with download managers. Secondly, you posted to old thread. If you want help with your yahoo messenger, I suggest you contact Yahoo for support. Should you still need help, come back here and post a NEW!!!! thread. Preferably one with a title that has at least something to do with your problem, OK?

    Download Accelerator

    Once you get Firefox configured DAP works great. I have used it forsevral years and each update gets better. Firefox Download Manger likes control bu it is not as fast as DAP I use DAP Premium ver 7.0 problems. Now if they would just develop one for my Linux machines I would be a happy camper,

    FDM rules, at least for me

    The main reason I need a download manager is batch downloads from different sites. I can't think at anything else now.
    I've recently found and liked a lot FDM. You can give it a try and see - above all, it's FREE.

    You can get it here:
