Buy the full-featured Internet Download Manager TODAY from Tonec Inc. for a special Christmas price of $24.95 (instead of $29.95).

Author's blurb:
Quote

 Internet Download Manager (IDM) is a tool to increase download speeds by up to 5 times, resume and schedule downloads. Comprehensive error recovery and resume capability will restart broken or interrupted downloads due to lost connections, network problems, computer shutdowns, or unexpected power outages. Simple graphic user interface makes IDM user friendly and easy to use.Internet Download Manager has a smart download logic accelerator that features intelligent dynamic file segmentation and safe multipart downloading technology to accelerate your downloads. Unlike other download managers and accelerators Internet Download Manager segments downloaded files dynamically during download process and reuses available connections without additional connect and login stages to achieve best acceleration performance.

Internet Download Manager supports proxy servers, ftp and http protocols, firewalls, redirects, cookies, authorization, MP3 audio and MPEG video content processing. IDM integrates seamlessly into Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape, MSN Explorer, AOL, Opera, Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Firebird, Avant Browser, MyIE2, and all other popular browsers to automatically handle your downloads. You can also drag and drop files, or use Internet Download Manager from command line. Internet Download Manager can dial your modem at the set time, download the files you want, then hang up or even shut down your computer when it's done.

Other features include multilingual support, zip preview, download categories, scheduler pro, sounds on different events, HTTPS support, queue processor, html help and tutorial, enhanced virus protection on download completion, progressive downloading with quotas (useful for connections that use some kind of fair access policy or FAP like Direcway, Direct PC, Hughes, etc.), built-in download accelerator, and many others.

Version 5.15 adds IDM download panel for web-players that can be used to download flash videos from sites like YouTube, MySpaceTV, and Google Videos. It also features complete Vista support, YouTube grabber, redeveloped scheduler, and MMS protocol support. The new version also adds improved integration for IE and IE based browsers, redesigned and enhanced download engine, the unique advanced integration into all latest browsers, improved toolbar, and a wealth of other improvements and new features.

Hmmm...  didn't support proxy.pac proxies last time I looked, but I haven't checked recently.

It is always priced at $24.95. I bought it in November, 2007 exactly at this price. Since then, I have checked the website over 100 times. Every time, I have seen it being offered at this price. Christmas or no Christmas, you will get it at $24.95 all the year round. It's the best download manager, though.

<sigh>  I got suckered again   >:(  by a dishonest discount advert.

It's a good download manager, but I wish it would work with proxy.pac proxies.  Some people think ReGet is the best, but I haven't tried that.

Internet Download Manager is the best. It downloads at a bit more speed than my internet connection would allow.

I used reget, i remember it was one of the best i tested.

I bought IDM - that was several years ago, and I have never had to pay for an upgrade or anything, and it has always worked flawlessly - including with chrome as soon as it was out, near enough.
