The people's choice 5 stars by realbull2009250 Jul 18, 2015 (Read all my 57 reviews)
Well Snapfiles' description really describes it all about Free Download Manager(FDM). I've been using FDM since I used XP. When I had Vista I tried many other downloaders, but ended up sticking with FDM. On Windows 7 64x I tried Internet Download Accelerator(IDA) which is excellent(read my review), but I ended up switching to FDM again. Why do I keep coming back? I'm not sure, but it's like breaking up with an ex and getting back together again because you're infatuated with that person. Maybe I hate the nag screens to buy the premium versionscough...IDA, the pop-up ads(Download Accelerator Plus) or the shadiness(I'm looking at you FlashGet and Orbit Downloader!) of other downloaders. Maybe I like that it's open-source and genuinely free. Maybe I like that you can make your own toolbar skins(if you have the skills or patience). Maybe I like it because it supports Torrent files. Maybe I like it because it has been around longer than most other downloaders(EagleGet, DownloadNinja... you're still babies) and the code has been tweaked to refinement. Whatever the reason to why I keep coming back, I think FDM is here to stay from now on. show Review details

This is it, Once again snapfiles has provided a solution to me. Every thing is here which I wanted. You get following for free: 1. Its free still no spyware or worms. When you stop the program you feel as if you never downloaded this software. 2. It speeds up the download 3. It gives the status of download with speed and all data 4. easy interface, just drag and drop link from any where even youtube. 5. The interface gives several information options such as how many downloaded, download under process, scheduled, the history of download along with in what folder downloaded. 6. The preview section may play the audio or video within the software. I haven't used any download software from long because it used to corrupt the window system's original setting and infiltrated with worms and spywares. BUT this is not the case with "free download manager". I haven't tested any other download software but I don't need any; as this is giving me everything I want. I say GO FOR IT. Thanks to snapfiles and software developer for providing it and for free. show Review details
