    I'm really satisfied with GetRight at the moment.

    But I think there won't be any differences between them in 1-2 years. There are only slight differences between managers. The situation was completely different 2-3 years ago, as you remember. There were fundamental differences of use and function between managers.

    If you have tried all, you can easily notice that GetRight, Flashget and Free Download Manager have almost the same funcitons and the download speed provided by them is almost the same! :D

    Other please specify

    Well, it's Free Download Manager, excellent Download manager, I've used a handful and find this is simple and easy to use, plus I like the auto AV scan that you set up once a file is complete

    Orbit Downloader used to be my favorite download manager, but not anymore. It has become somewhat buggy in latest versions, and I ended up uninstalling it completely from my system.

    Now, I use the built-in download managers from IE and Firefox. On Firefox, I downloaded some extensions to improve its native download manager capabilities: Download Manager Tweak and DownloadHelper.

    To download Torrents, I use uTorrent, and to download from P2P network, I use FrostWire.

    Used to be a Download Accelerator maniac back in the day, when i had Dial-Up.
    You could never finish a download without resuming.
    I still remember i was downloading an Age of Empire II Demo, right after 98% the connection FAILED! OMGGGG
    I almost died man!! It took me like 9999 Hours to get there. After that i found Download Accelerator and never had an isue. Now with Cable/ADSL i don't use download managers anymore

    Mozilla's built-in download manager is sufficient for me.
    I rather frequently use utorrent

    Still using Flashget v1.73, never failed me not even one byte. I think after that version the developers have changed. Never liked the newer versions.

    The only thing it lacks is the ability to change cookies and post data prior to download. Anyone knows a download manager that has such ability?

    Free Download Manager is the best.
    It is very fast and efficient.
    It also supports pause/resume and torrent downloads too.
