    Now set the Size format as 123 K and the Speed format as 2.1 K and I guess you're done.

    If CLI scares you, gwget is the GNOME frontend for wget and Kget is the KDE front end. Dunno if Downloader for X is based on wget or not. I just stick to wget from CLI, it's easy enough and doesn't use much resources.

    @Qwerty, just click on the minimize icon on the top-right of the Terminal Window.
    Other options include press 'Alt + F9'. This will minimize it.

    There is another Download Manager available called Aria.
    It's also a good one. It's according to your preference @Thilina.
    You can use Gwget, D4x, Aria ,wget etc.,

    well wget is damm easy
    to download a file just go to terminal type wget & just copy paste the d/l location using ctrl+c & crtl+shift+v
    Code:
    wget www.microsoft.com.vista/exe
    can anything be more simple than that??

    @Thilina, Here is the link for Aria. Download it from here.

    NOTE: If you are using a Debian-based distro then you must convert the RPM package
    to Debian format using the 'alien' command.
    For eg.,
    $ sudo alien <package>.extension

    This will convert it to Debian format. Install it as you install a Debian package.

    Newly designed patented url from MS vista can only access such kind of urls. Vista users will not be able to browse url's in current format. :p
