I think you will find most of us are in agreement in that these download managers do not generally make much difference to the actual speed BUT (as with DAP) the resume facility is ver useful.

DL managers i think people really use them the "Resume" bit...

I think 'Freshdownload' is free 'Flashget' is not but is very good. They may speed up your download by splitting it and downloading from 4 or more sites simultaneously but the big advantage is resuming broken downloads at the poit where you 'timed-out'.

That's what I use. I think it's the best but there are many different views of course. Splitting D/L from four or five different sites is something that DAP does, as you will know, but there is no great benefit in that as it all has to travel down the same sized "pipe" to arrive with you and that is the major restriction on D/L speeds.

I personally like, and use, Download Express. Free and no spyware.
