Need some Advice

  J B 16:47 02 Jun 2005

I know there has been much written on this subject, however I need some advice on download managers. At present I am using LeechGet 2004 free version, but have been reading about Star downloader, to which by all accounts is better than LeechGet. My question is, has anybody been using either one of the two download managers I mentioned and if so which one do they prefer if any? The second question I have is, Should I leave them both alone and go with the inbuilt download manager in firefox? I should mention that I only have a dialup connection at present,and my OS is XP SP2. J.B.

My experiences with DMs on dial-up, were that they always slowed things down. So IMHO you should stick with the built-in Firfox one.

The one built into fitrfox is the best you'll get for free.

The best I know of is Download Manager Plus (DAP)
and I cannot give you a "click here". Typical!!!!
Best of luck mate.

Last cup of coffee put me off, it should read Download Accelerator Plus. Here`s to alcohol.
