Let’s be honest! half of my life was spent downloading download managers. I have tried alomst everything till now but never came across anything like IDM. I’ve tried loads of download managers the earliest ones being Download Accelerator Pro (DAP) and GoZilla. Later I moved to Star downloader and it couldn’t work up to my expectation so ended up using Net Transport by Xi-soft. During the course of changing download managers the one that really got to me was IDM. With IDM I have witnessed 8x speed a lot more than I got with any other download manager. IDM provided me with 16 threads each one accelerating the speed. I’ve acquired speed up to 600 KB/Sec while my regular download gave me 80 KB/Sec. Coming to the best part, IDM automatically picks almost all the audio and video streams as soon as you play them. This includes snatching media from all major sites like Facebook, Soundclick, YouTube etc. With IDM you don’t need another Firefox based plug-in to download files but you can snatch media from any browser. Highly recommended to my readers.
