You are not required to go through the installation process, as this program is portable. This also means that, unlike installers, it is not going to create new entries in the Windows registry or hard drive without your approval, and it will not leave any kind of traces behind.
Another important aspect that you should take into account is that if you place the program files to a USB flash drive, you can take JDownloadManager with you everywhere and run it on any PC you get your hands on.
The interface you come by presents a minimal and straightforward design, as it is only comprised of a menu bar, a few buttons and a pane which displays all past and current downloads. It becomes quite clear that both power and novice users can learn how to handle it without experiencing any kind of problems.
Pause download and view all the items being processed
This software utility enables you to download items from the Internet, by simply pasting the URL that interests you to the appropriately-labeled box. The main window is going to display all the ones previously download and the ones currently being processed, along with details such as link, size, progress and status.
Aside from that, you should know it is possible to cancel a download, as well as pause and resume it at a later date. No other notable options are included.
To sum up, JDownloadManager is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to downloading items from the Internet. All tasks are performed quite fast, the computer’s performance is not going to be impeded and our tests did not register any errors or crashes. Nonetheless, power users might find it a bit too simple, as it lacks some options that other similar products enclose.
