    Never been a fan of download managers, I guess it's helpful for those frequently downloading large files.

    It certainly looks interesting Ron, I don't know how much better it is than the manager & Status bar extension I already have in SeaMonkey, which is about as good as it gets (I don't really download much).

    One of the advantages of a good download manager (DM) is the ability to resume a download that gets interrupted (if the server supports it). That was really helpful when I had slower connections, and it could still be useful when downloading a multi-gigabyte file, but it doesn't come up often. Some DMs also split files into pieces so the download can have multiple threads. That's helpful when servers put caps on download speed, but somethings the reassembly afterward doesn't work <g>.

    Sorry guys, this one seems worthless. Don't waste your time with it. Seems others at Seven forum are getting the same results as me.
