Download Accelerators

Download Accelerators
Those of us on dial up can use download accelerators to speed up getting stuff in.
I have used free versions of DAP in the past and on a recommendation from the forum Leech get.

Time now to review which to get in as a paid for version or if there are better ones out there.
Firefox presents its own panel to progress a download – I don’t think this is an accelerator as such- though it has prevented Leechget putting up its own progress panel.

All opinions much appreciated

click here There is a plug in to available to make Leechget Firefox enabled, works for me and as a home user I don't see the point of paying. But if you need the commercial license try leechget premium.

This one is good, and integrates with firefox, no spyware here

FreshDownload is free both from cost and ads - click here

However, the Firefox Download Manager is equally as efficient as FreshDownload and can also Resume as and when necessary...:-)
