A reliable and powerful web browser add-on that allows users to download files faster than the regular browser download manager

editor's review






Download Express is a download manager whose capabilities can be better observed when saving to disk files of large sizes.

The interface of the program borrows elements from other similar software, so it is pretty simplistic. You can add an URL, set its output destination, as well as referrer. By default, a task is in an idle state when you add it to the queue, so you have to start it.

For each active downloading task, a window pops up in which you can view various information (file name, URL, output path, file size, current speed, estimated time left and if the "resume" option is supported).

You can also view a map (a graphical representation of downloaded parts of the file), progress and tips on how to use the manager. Furthermore, you can set downloading speed by adjusting a slider (background, low, medium, high).

In the "Advanced" menu, you can select preferred language, action to take when download completes (e.g. play sound, show message), as well as enable virus checkup for downloaded files (by selecting a third-party antivirus software).

In addition, you can configure the minimal thread size, connection timeout, settings for each speed mode, HTTP and FTP proxy settings, as well as integration (e.g. accept specific file types).

The program uses a small amount of system resources and manages to download a large file (e.g. 1.44GB) in a significantly lower amount of time than other download managers. Also, you can access a well-drawn online help file (includes snapshots).

We haven't come across any problems during our tests. The bottom line is that Download Express is a very good download manager and we strongly recommend it to all users.
