    Oh? You're just looking for a speed increase?

    Try using http:ProzGUI as a graphical frontend to Prozilla download manager which is described as having a bandwidth throttler.

    yup, prozilla and prozGUI are what you want...its not a 100% brilliant solution, the interface isnt great looking and you have to copy and paste the links in...but it does give a noticable speed increase. It works by downloading sections of a large file simultaneously....

    I'd recomend it...

    Hi
    I have tried d4x too and from my experience it... well, sux
    Why? Slow and inconsistant download spees even with 3 or more segments downloaded at a time; stopping downloads without a reason and without being able to resume even when FTP allows it and the most important thing: either i didn't found that option, or this proggie always wanted to download all files from the list at the same time instead of putting them in queue.
    That's what i think about d4x.

    As for other download accelerators/managers: proZilla works great and it splits the file like any self-respecting d/a would. It even have graphical GUI add-on but it's terrible imo.

    Right now i'm tryin Aria - it's quite nice and it have all i need, but i didn't tested it on big files yet. Downloading 442MB now...

    By the way: i'm looking especially for something that resides in system tray when minimized, just like Kget but with segmented download capability. Any ideas?
