I have been using a download manager for years. (it allows resume and multiple connections)

I need to change as the version I am using no longer works with Win7, IE8 or IE9 it was FlashGet Ver 1.73

I dont really want to use Version 3 as it is full of adware. 

Is anyone using download managers other than the ones built into IE9, Firefox etc?

What is the best?

I use Orbit.
Clean and simple.

It does have an annoying software updater plug-in thing but that can be easily
removed by deleting the .dll file in the folder.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Thanks everyone, Orbit installs crapware...

IDM is nice, I really liked flashget 1.73 for it simple, and fast UI....

Will do some testing!
