    wget is great but also have a look at curl. I still prefer wget for its outright simplicity and quick resuming of downloads.

    wget is truely one of the great Linux apps. I wonder if there is an easy way to make firefox open a terminal and use wget when downloading files. I know there's kget, and I like it, but wget is tops in my book.

    EDIT: There may be a way... I'm checking this page... Link

    There's a great way to run terminal commands with php.

    <?php
    shell_exec(wget xyz);
    ?>
