Enhance your download processes
FlashGet accelerates your downloads using its implemented technologies, lending a helping hand to users that have unstable and/or slow Internet connections. The utility can also integrate into your browser and take control over the files you attempt to download while surfing the web.
We've tested FlashGet with Firefox, as the download manager automatically installed a dedicated extension to handle downloads and everything worked like a charm.
Less beauty, more power
Although the interface is surprisingly good, the 'Settings' window instantly generates wrinkles on your face. The choice of font is not the most fortunate because it is hard for anyone to read the available options. In addition, the lack of an intuitive GUI takes this specific window deeper into oblivion as the sections from the left side of the window do not look like they're holding any items other than 'General Settings', 'Task Manager', 'Download Settings' or 'Appearance'.
The best thing about FlashGet is actually the way it works. It's incredibly fast and works pretty simple. Every time you right click a link that leads to a downloadable file, FlashGet comes into play and takes over. This way, you don't even need dedicated extensions in your browser, you can simply use this download manager to be up and running.
To end with
Overall, FlashGet is a must have, no matter how fast your Internet connection actually is. The application surely packs enough features to make it fun to work with for all users. Even though it's not the best looking of its kind, amount of potential behind the interface leaves nothing more to be desired.
