Star Downloader Free 1.45

A download manager that accelerates your downloads by splitting the files into several parts and downloading them simultaneously
Star Downloader Free is a utility that promises to make file downloading a breeze as it offers an impressive lineup of features along with the ones we usually find in this kind of apps.

The interface is very clean and easy to use, adopting the same layout as other similar managers on the market. There's a download organizer as well, helping you keep track of the files you're currently downloading, the ones that are paused or scheduled.

In addition, Star Downloader Free gives you the power to create your very own file categories, so every single download will be placed in the category you choose once the new file lands on your computer.

The software comes with browser integration, which means it can take control of the downloads you initiate in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape or Opera. In addition, it also monitors the clipboard and, as soon as you copy a link, the app also opens the 'New Download' window to start the transfer on the go.

There's a rich settings menu, with tools to scan the files for viruses after the download comes to end, but also to configure Star Downloader Free work with a proxy. It also has multi-language support, so you can choose from a wide array of translations.

Star Downloader Free works on low computer resources, but to make sure it won't hamper performance, the app also comes with dedicated features to choose the maximum number of simultaneous downloads and the number of parts to split each file into.

The good thing is definitely the fact that Star Downloader Free has a pleasant interface and the features a download manager user wants, such as browser integration and clipboard monitoring.

Overall however, with some improvements here and there, Star Downloader Free could become a really powerful application.
