Free Download Manager Benefits

Schedule your download processes
  • Download managers have developed a lot, so that most of them rely on basically the same set of features, so the main differences between these programs have come down to the interface and the way they interact with browsers.
  • Its interface is well organized and structured, so less experienced users will be able to find their way around it without any hassle, while experts can configure it as they see fit.
  • Since it competes among the best, this download Manager comes with support for torrents, a download scheduler, detailed file information as well as the ability to download Flash videos. In addition, it features an advanced organizer for storing downloaded files in distinct folders.
Easily convert media files
  • One of the features that sets this Download Manager apart from other similar software is the fact that it contains a media converter – although it supports only common formats (AVI, FLV, WMV, MEPG, MP4, and MP3), it does come in handy to be able to encode a video within the same app used for downloading it.
Personalize connection and post-process settings

Furthermore, users can also extract the contents of the archives they download within the app or even perform a virus check using the antivirus solution installed on the computer. Users who rely on dial-up connection can choose to automatically ‘hang up’ after a download has completed, thus keeping their costs at a minimum.

The Optimization Master is ideal for those who prefer to allow the application to choose the appropriate settings for their connection speed. The export and import functions are useful for saving settings and download lists for later use.
