There are a lot of download managers out there, that's for sure, but Mass Downloader claims to be the first application that's supposed to help you download multiple files in the same time at maximum speed. Well, Mass Downloader can definitely take advantage of your high-speed Internet connection, but it can't do wonders unless your ISP provides greater download speeds.
Clever integration with your web browser
Nevertheless, this tool is a pretty good download manager as it can monitor clipboard and automatically take control of the file almost instantly. Plus, Mass Downloader comes with addons for the most popular browsers out there, including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.
Snoop through ZIP files before downloading
Mass Downloader supports HTTP, FTP and HTTPS protocols and even comes with a built-in FTP browser. Plus, it has the power to let you view the files included in a ZIP archive and choose to download only the files you need.
Easily schedule download sessions
In case you don't need to download the files on the spot, you can use the built-in scheduler to set the time, day, month and even weekday when you want the task to be performed.
Various technical and visual customization options
The interface is pretty much similar to the one used by so many other download managers out there, but Mass Downloader offers users the power to customize toolbar buttons and their color.
There is also a very rich settings menu that enables you to configure Internet and download options, as well as proxy server and integration related preferences.
All in all, the truth is that Mass Downloader is quite a great way to download files from the Internet. It has lots of functions and customizations available for you to play with and a browser integration feature that simply works.
