I've become quite interested in download managers lately and I'm just wondering what the members of PC use. =D

I would add a poll but I don't know the name of many download managers. =\

I use either Firefox's built in one or IObit's Download Accelerator.

I used to use Free Download Manager, but since FF's is good enough in FF3, I can avoid having another background process going. :D

Firefox's and Safari's are fine. Opera's is okay, but the rest are pretty sad. Does IE have resume support yet? I haven't used it in ages.

erm I use safari's download manager because it works well enough for me, though for downloading larger things like Ubuntu install discs I prefer to use transmission because I can set it to use a pre-determined limit on transfer speed, allowing everyone on my network to continue using the internet like normal with out any noticeable lag.

I mostly use Firefox's built-in download manager. Though, whenever I download large files (such as Ubuntu, like Gerri said), I normally use the Firefox add-on DownThemAll!, but it has been a while since I last used that.

98% of the time, FF's builtin dl mgr.. for the rest (and for multi-file downloads) I use the Down Them All FF plug-in.

I usually use the one built into Opera. It is just convenient, and it works like it is supposed to without giving you BS. Sometimes I use FlashGet Classic, but only when I am deviantArt (because DA is finicky on my laptop for some reason, and will only let me upload in Internet Explorer).

I always use the one built into Google Chrome. It's actually somewhat more convenient than Firefox and very simple for me to use.

Firefox's manager, and Down Them All (add-on) for multi-files.

Generally I use Firefox's builtin manager for my downloads, though occasionally I might use DownThemAll If I'm batch downloading from a site that doesn't try to prevent such batch downloads.

Just the standard Firefox one. I don't believe in DMs...they don't do anything.

File, save target as, done...

On Windows, I use something called Orbit downloader, its really fast and free!

( Downloaded WoW in 12 minutes, normal speed was two hours )

This is what I use except I probably use it more often, I use it mostly when downloading roms.
I'm thought about Orbit before but I don't think I do enough downloads for that.

It's not like it's anything big or fancy, and for a free rapid downloader it's cake :P

Firefox, most of the time...

Because that's my current internet browser! :)

I use IDM (Internet Download Manager): is fast, light and automatic. But it isn't free.

However, a good download manager.

PS: don't ask me how can I have it.

I use Firefox MOSTLY, because I don't do much fancy downloading. However for large files i have Free Download Manager. It can resume downloads, do torrents and web spiders as well.

Whenever I download a picture from Google, I always use Firefox's downloading system.

When I'm downloading a image or MP3, 99% of the time I use Firefox's built-in DLM. However, whenever I'm downloading a game or something else that's larger than usual, I use DownloadThemAll.

Just the normal Firefox or Opera downloader. Maybe sometimes i use IoBit downloader.

For .mp3's and pictures I use the Firefox DLM, but I download/torrent most things uTorrent.
