GetGo Download Manager is a fully-featured free download manager with an integrated web video downloader. It can increase download speeds by up to 5 times, resume, and schedule downloads. Comprehensive error recovery and resume capability can restart broken or interrupted downloads due to lost connections, network problems, computer shutdowns, or unexpected power outages. The simple yet modern graphic user interface makes the app user friendly and easy to use.
This Internet Download Manager has a smart download engine that can intelligently segment the file using multiple threads to accelerate your downloads. It supports proxy servers, FTP, and Http protocols, firewalls, redirects, cookies, and authorization.
The user interface of the software is resembling that of other similar solutions, so you will easily find your way through it.
In the “Downloads” panel you can view downloading, queued, failed, stopped, pending, scheduled, completed tasks, categories, and history.
Plus, you can check out information about a specific task in the “Properties” panel (e.g. percent completed, output directory, category, priority, time start, remaining and elapsed), while you can get a preview of the specific file.
Furthermore, the product features an integrated web browser (GetGo123) that can detect web videos using cloud-based technology for you to download and save to local disk. Other features include download categories, scheduler, sounds on different events, batch download queue, ability to integrate virus protection on download completion, and a wealth of other improvements and features.
