Free Download Manager (FDM) is a full-featured freeware downloading program. It allows you to download files and whole web sites from any remote server via HTTP, HTTPS and FTP.
This is a really nice alternative for GetRight etc.! It also has a drop-box you can place on the desktop - which hides when you run another program in full-screen mode (guess who suggested that feature ). It has a great rating on that FileForum page above, and while it's not perfect it's great for its price (0,00)!
In combination with the FlashGot 0.5.9.99 it's even better! If you haven't already, get this great Firefox extension from http://www.flashgot.net/
Let me give you an example
Let's say you grab some wallpapers from various sites every now and then (or pdf files, or videos, or spreadsheets, or ...). That page could look like this:
When it's one of those sites that directly link to images (and not linking to stupid html pages which load one image then) you would just mark the images you would like to download with the mouse:
Then you would right-click to get the context menu, where you would choose FlashGot Selection. When you don't mark images first it will look like this:
The great thing about FlashGot 0.5.9.99 now is that it allows you to set the file types which it should hand over to the download manager (for example Free Download Manager). So when you like ALL the images on one page you could just choose FlashGot All or, even better - you open several sites in several tabs, point each tab to where the page links to the images you want and then just choose FlashGot Tabs (you need to enable FlashGot Tabs in the FlashGot Options first).
Now you will automatically download all the images/files from all tabs in that Firefox window that fit the FlashGot filter you did set. GREAT and IMHO a must-have, even if you only do mass-downloading once a month.
