    I tried out many

    1) Go Zilla - outdated and bugged
    2) Flashget - popular but no that good
    3) Leechget - very good speed and is very easy for a newbie. Every download starts with a wizard which searches for the fastest server using pings.
    4) Get Right - The best downloader. It's very good. It has lots of features. A powerful feature packed downloader
    5) Internet download manager : Sheer speed. Eady to use. Not much features though. It will not run for more than 30 days Even if u reinstalled without formatting hard disks
    6) Download Accelerator PLus 7.2 - It downloads ads. It doesn't have good options like How many simultaneous threads. It wastes ur bandwidth

    Result- best try Leechget or Getright (latest version from official sites)

    DAP is da best, though it's shareware. FreshDownload is also good and best of all, it's FREE ! U just need to get a free serial no. by registering at their site http://www.freshdevices.com.

    Since this is a discussion on Download Managers...

    Getright - has all the standard downloading capabilites such as segment downloading and so on. Segment downloading is limited as it depends on mirrors. Cannot download from Chinese sites such as ttdown or 9down. Defenitely cannot download from brturbo sites (I am assuming u guys know what brturbo is!). And also it crashes a lot if there are too many simultanious downloads.

    DAP - buggy, shareware even with the crack cannot download from ttdown and brturbo.

    Reget Deluxe - extremely good for http downloads. supports upto 100 segments for each download. FTP downloads work fine. Does not support segment downloading for FTP's unless u have mirrors. WIll not download always from ttdown and never from BRTURBO.

    Flashget - As someone said it is the most popular download manager. Supports simultanious downloads, proxies( u can http proxies for both ftp and http), segment downloading. Has a limitation of 10 simultanious downloads which can be overcome using a small registry tweak I'll post that later). Works with ttdown and 9down links. Plus it is the only download manager which will work on brturbo. Other DL Managers needs certain steps to be done.


    I think the rest are either too specific or not worthy of a mention here.

    ReGet

    Reget is the best I've used till now. U can schedule downloads, there is a sit manager which takes care of all the download in that week & that month, There is also a FTP browser. Reget makes use of full bandwidth. So, ReGet is the best...
    Try It.

    Reget for me, all the way (- wget on linux).
    Reget has all the features of flashget too - the one real thing why flashget is popular is that of the "referrer" function - which reget has.

    Reget's referer feature doesnt work. Also regets ftp explorer isnt nearly as good as flashgets. And once again if ur behind a proxy (HTTP) regets http proxy supports both ftp and http....regets doesnt work always....tried and tested...
