Internet Download Manager is, predictably, a download manager for the internet. The accurately named program allows users to combine all of their downloads into a single system. Users can manage their downloads by queuing them, stopping them and restarting them and controlling where they are downloaded to. The software program also offers a host of more advanced features that allow the user to control every aspect of the downloading process, including setting proxies and controlling port forwarding.
The Internet Download Manager doesn't just manage downloads, it also accelerates downloads. It does this by opening up multiple threads with servers, but users that are on very slow internet connections may not notice much of a difference. The Internet Download Manager can help users scan their files for viruses once they are already downloaded and can limit the amount of bandwidth used by certain programs. The download manager supports multiple types of file protocol such as FTP, HTTP and HTTPS which means that it can download from virtually any source. Downloads can be classified by type for better organizational purposes and users can use the download manager to modify the files by renaming them or moving them.
Any user who wants to be able to manage all of their software downloads in one application can benefit from this software, which is an extremely lightweight utility. The Internet Download Manager software is a comprehensive download solution that unfortunately suffers a little from its appearance. Casual users will likely be intimidated by the software's options, and the interface itself looks a little dated. With a cleaner, more professional interface the software system would likely be more attractive. The software might also consider moving some of the options it offers off of the main view in favor of a more user-friendly experience. One large issue with the software, however, is simply that there are other options available that are just as good and are free. This software system is a paid program, whereas there are many download programs available that are completely free and that offer very similar functionality if not more diverse functions.
