Raptor is an easy to use download manager that provides a very simple way to control your downloads and a limited number of customization options to address all types of users.
If you're already using one of the advanced download managers currently on the market, Raptor may disappoint you, mostly because it lacks some important features such as browser integration or clipboard monitoring.
In plain English, this means that you have to automatically add new download links into the application, while Raptor then takes care of the rest and shows a bunch of useful details right in the main window.
You can for example see the file name, status, file size, data received and percentage, speed, elapsed and remaining time, thus getting a quick overview over the active downloads.
Once you wish to add a new download, you're prompted to provide the link and the output folder, with a separate folder to begin the download at a later date and just add only the entry in the main window.
The settings menu provides a few more features, including the possibility to log all download links, perform an action when all downloads are completed, choose the default folder to save files, enable sounds or display a floating box.
Raptor doesn't slow down the system, but instead it only works on Windows XP and Windows Vista, so Windows 7 users can't launch the application.
Overall, Raptor does what it says, but it still needs a bunch of improvements to become an important player in this crowded software segment.
