well nothing really accelerates downloads, although (when supported) download managers can use multiple connections to help speed things up a little.

In the case of download managers, I have gone through MANY free ones and none of them were as polished or fast as GetRight. Getright has been around for many years, it offers a fairly uncluttered display and you can setup default behaviors (how many files to download simultaniously, and how many connection segaments per file to start with). Most download managers dont actually support multi segament downloading and the ones that did downloaded to seperate files which often froze up your system at the end of a download as it copied and pasted each section into one.

I hate paying for net applications, but getright I bought. (well, sorta. They also use that service where you can get the application free if you sign up for a trial service of some sort, in my case I signed up for a credit card which I never used).

Free Download Manager always crashed on me whenever I enabled a full screen application (aka a game), so I quit using it. This included version 3

I bought and use Getright. It's pretty good, but a scheduling feature would be nice to schedule off peak downloads.

I bought GetRight years ago also and it was good. However there were on going bugs, serious ones like downloading 99% of a large file then deleting it, not resuming from resume supporting servers. I reported bugs complete with steps to reproduce but nothing was done. Free Download Manager was a god-send, it completely replaces GetRight with superior features and stability. Us Aussies pay too much for net so we need all the download help we can get.

FlashGet ftw. Been using it for years. The older version (v1.73) is better IMO.
