    Flashget's bit-torrent abilities are very mediocre at best. Learned it the hard way, stand alone torrent clients are better. I don't get its built-in file priority option for torrents, it just doesn't work. I have not tried this final release, but these issue's aren't addressed in the changelog. So there is little hope.

    Absolutely right. Currently I'm using IDM just bcoz of it has no problem with Rapidshare and other upload sites. Flashget started giving problems in these sites.

    And yes! Flashget's interface is very simply and easy to use :)

    Currently I'm not using Flashget so I can't tell the exact option, but u can find an option in Flashget Settings, I think there is a tab "Proxy" ;)

    yes this goes for any browser , just go to Tools->Options->Protocol in FG n set your User-Agent string the same as your browser .

    to get your browser's agent string , go here :
