    Question Do You use a Download Manager?

    I just wonder.. Is it legal to use a Download Accelerator to download stuffs here in Stoptazmo? If so.. What do you use to download contents from here? Are you the simple kind of person who just use the old built in Download Managers included in your browser ie. Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer(if some of you still does use it)...? or Are you a more demanding one who actually have one or more of the following installed
    ...Im actually planning to replace the Free Download Manager that I have been using for almost a year now.. I just dont know what software is better....

    What do you think?

    Yes, it is legal to use download managers although I did try to place restrictions that would make it difficult to use them but I have not updated those rules in a long time so you might be able to get away with it now. I do have scripts though to block multiple IP's connecting such as what happens using a download manager, so if you use one, don't hammer the server.

    I really do not download much so I just stick with what Firefox offers me honestly. As for the download managers, I think Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) is one of the larger ones, but I have not used it in years so I cannot offer too much input. I used Orbit for a while and it worked decently. You might have to give them all a try to see what you like best.

    I don't download much so I usually don't use a download manager. What's the point when the files are like 10MB.

    For some things I use the DownThemAll! extension in Firefox, but I configure it to be very site-friendly: Only one download at a time. I do it that way because hobbyist sites used to be fairly low-end and would ban people for downloading with multiple connections or for retrying too frequently. Maybe things have changed. I also have a shared Internet connection, so multiple downloads at once would not be very nice.

    Free Download Manager (FDM; is pretty popular. It has more features than DownThemAll! I've never used it, but it's often recommended. Free (open source), no adware (unlike many others).

    I've heard of one called JDownloader. It has support for those file hosting sites like rapidshare, etc., but it requires Java. At least that means it works on linux and mac too.
