I like download managers in general. Most of them are pretty decent and I have no problem with them for the most part. The only issue I have is that they make it VERY hard to control. You all know what I mean. Occasionally, you want the download manager to NOT get involved in a particular download. Most of the ones I've tried make this a painful process. First, most of them have a hotkey combo to bypass the download manager...but it doesn't always work. I've felt they hardly ever work. but that may be just me. Fine. Secondly, you may say "fuck it" and just exit/close the entire download manager application. I don't mean minimize to tray...I mean really close it. BUT...even when you do this, it always gets reincarnated as soon as you click a program to download. Then you search through the options to try to turn that feature off, but it will not be clear which option controls that. Then, after fiddling around for a while, you realize that it's not downloading anything at all now!
I just need a simple bypass option sometimes. And for pete's sake, when I turn the program off...STAY OFF. They all get reanimated like some bad zombie movie. One of the few genres of programs that tend to do that universally.
