    Hey I am currently searching for a lite download manager to replace the Internet Explorer 8 one. I don't really need one like flashget or anything like that, just something that lets me stop and resume big file downloads.

    i use jdownloader but mainly for megaupload and those websites
    bad side is its java and a little on the heavy side so if you are not working with a lot of resources can be a pain

    Yea I have that but I mean something thats like when you click on a download on IE8 instead of the usual download box appearing you can choose wether you want to save it to the program and resume it later.

    I tried that but couldn't find anything that I was looking for. Oh well I guess I just have to wait for IE9 when they improve the downloads.

    Never going to happen. It's Microsoft's browser we're talking about here. [​IMG]

    If you used a browser like Firefox you could get a small addon to do that.

    I was going to suggest flashget as an alternative, though I see you already mentioned that. It does all that you ask for... so I dunno.

    You can get a big lot of download managers on Firefox.

    Why would Mozzilla work on a browser they are competing with... First time I have heard of that. [​IMG]


    Edit:
    I remember when Firefox 3 was released the IE team sent the firefox team a cake to congratulate them on the launch.

    This is complete BS, Mozzilla would have wanted to get paid in trident layers. Where did you get your information from?

    I use IDM (Internet Download Manager). You can specify folders for videos, music, compressed, programs etc. I use it for megaupload mostly. It's nice to be able to highlight 50 links and queue them up.
