15 Download Managers & Accelerators

15 Download Managers & Accelerators
Speed up your downloads!

We live in an environment that's rich in media and data. Even with the broadest bandwidth, handling and organizing your downloads, whether you're grabbing media, data, or software, can still be a hassle. Here are a few download managers, accelerators, add-ons, and torrent managers that we hope will help you keep your gigabytes of data moving at a good clip and properly sorted on your computer.

A word of warning: Many of these programs are ad-supported or come bundled with extraneous add-ons, so a little vigilance during installation is recommended. Should an add-on to the program actually be a useful integration, we'll mention it in the pages below, if not, it's probably an superfluous toolbar that you could do without.

    It's a real shame you didn't include DownThemAll into that list. Alongside IDM, DownThemAll is practically the next best thing in my personal experience.

    I wish you would discuss the rampant adware present in many of these products. Most of the applications listed here are very functional, but be careful because most of them also contain stuff you don't want (without always informing you about it).
