Recommendations please :-)




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

 


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

I use FlashGet - Thats the more productive one I have found in the free list of download managers

If you can pay, then Internet Download Manager is worth getting!

I use Orbit tool,  I did have have a small problem with it no resumeing proper of some downloads. I also have the p2p off as it's not a very good at p2p, if you want to p2p then utorrent is way better at managing that.  I like Orbit's grabber, it makes it easy to download embeded content, like youtube other video flash styles.

But still I use it.
