After a beta testing phase, the guys in charge of Free Download Manager released a new version of their well-known software, including new and surprising features, as well as a nice touch towards clearing the reputation of their software.
- Flash video download
- Audio / video files converter
- Bittorent support
- Easy file sharing
- Remote control
- Portable mode
- Metalink support
- General Public License
- Multilanguage support (desired language may be chosen during installation)
It seems the guys want you to use their software for all your downloading needs
. The most important part is the use of the "General Public License", or the GPL, which means the source code for the software is available, and hosted on SourceForge
. So now everyone can take a peek at the code to see if something suspicious is lurking there (the software, or more precisely, the page was flagged as harmful by SiteAdvisor in the past).
