I use the "DownloadThemAll" extension for Firefox:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201

You can use it to accelerate downloads or to download a bunch of files from a single page without having to click them individually.

Downloadthemall is very different then the programs mentioned above. One is ment to download multiple links (images, media, what ever) from a web page, the other uses multiple connections to download a single file.

when ever i use an accelerator i always set the connections to 2. the only reason i use one is
to resume downloads and queue them up.

No, downloadthemall uses multiple connections to download a single file as well. It does both and doesn't require running anything other than Firefox. Very convenient.

Increase your download speed up to 400%

DownThemAll features a smart download technique called ‘multipart download’. It splits files into multiple sections, which are downloaded simultaneously. This maximized use of bandwidth increases average download speed up to 400%.

You can manually add or remove sections whenever you want during the download, and you can choose the maximum number of chunks every file is split into.

Free Download Manager here.

Its got some flaws but is essentially sound.

Add rapidshare password into the password manager + import via clipboard =go to bed, wake up with everything done.

No hassle and its free.

For the free download manager users...

Start downloading something, then start up a game, tell me if it freezes, or just stops? and what OS you use.

Whenever I use FDM...I start up a game usually, and it just stops. Doesn't even crash, just stops, and shuts down.

In a similar vein as DownloademAll, jDownloader is fantastic FOSS.
