Good program, but the annoying thing is that it really is the first download tool which takes control of download, user cannot choose whether he wants to download via it or browser`s own download manager. But usually it doesnt bother me, cause its so cool that I can decided from FD options where to which type files are being downloaded. I really love this feature. Before this program, all downloaded files were in same folder and it really was big mess to find particular files from there!
But I`d hope for a confirmation dialog before downloading, wether I want to download via it or not.
Still one of the most intrusive download managers trying to control everything everywhere,annoying program.Just stay away from the Fresh Devices products and use free version of Net Transport or Star Downloader.
P.S. Unfortunately,the best free download manager Download Express ignores Firefox browser.
It basically is a great product, but I have not been able to obtain an activation code yet. Tried several times with several email addresses, but never got any mail back. Not even from their support. I do get the faq mail after asking for support, but that's about it. Getting THAT mail tells me there is nothing blocked so I guess they just don't care.
Very good works Perfect and best with Firefox and Flashgot.
I'm sure this is a great program but I had some issues with a fresh install a few days ago. I rebuilt a mates computer (so the computer was clean) and then installed this program. After installation, every time I would open Internet Explorer, it would hang. I don't know why this was occurring. OS: Win XP SP2. I don't know if this program has issues with SP2. I had to uninstall it to get IE working again.
I tried it, simply because I respect the "Fresh" group. But I've yet to see ANY download manager speed up my dial-up connection's downloads. (And I've tried a whole bunch of 'em). (Maybe it's my location...or somethin')? This one is as good as the others I've tried...no worse.
Maybe other people have had speed-ups with it...but it didn't do anything for me! A plus: it didn't screw-up my system ...
like some others have!
