Yep. I was thinking that someone who knows how to program could take a look at its source and make it better.

Just wondering, what would you like to see added?

For anything big that I need to leave downloading overnight I still use WellGet, also last updated in 2005, and it offers a lot more options than ConnectFusion.

Also, both ConnectFusion and WellGet will run without installing, just extract the installers and run the executables.  They both leave traces in the registry, (their settings), so can't truly be called portable/stealth.

I would like to have support for sending URLs for it to download via the command-line (where it will show the main window and download the specified url, then close the main window when done downloading and have it stay running in the system tray) and support for Rapidshare, etc. added to it.

Well, I uploaded its source to SourceForge. Its project page is at https://sourceforge....jects/connectfusion/.

Its a really nice attempt at a download manager. It would be quite a shame for it to go wasted. There's a similar styled program called Download Ninja but its too bloated since it relies on .NET 4.0 being installed.
