    Some people like d4x, a tipical downloader. kget is another one.

    Another good option, if you plan to use p2p, is to just use mldonkey.

    You can then use it to manage all your downloads: torrent, donkey and several more p2p networks. And you can as well use it to download regular files by just passing it the url.

    You can then see the progress on any web browser with support for javascript, by just looking at localhost:4080 (by default). That's good for me because you don't depend on a specific graphics toolkit or library. In fact you can as well manage it using even plain telnet.
