Downloading is an activity performed by almost any Internet user. That's because the Internet is the largest source of files, allowing you to find music, videos, software, images and so on, as your heart desires. But the problem regarding downloading files is that most web browsers have a very simple download manager which is not good enough for most users. The browser's download manager doesn't allow resuming a broken download and doesn't offer too much downloading speed. That's why it would be a good idea to use a 3rd party download manager which has all the features required by an Internet user. The software market for download managers is growing more and more but still, there are a lot of applications which include too many options, thus making their interface very difficult to use.

Most users want a balance between features and simpleness. Free Download Manager can offer this demanded balance, as it's a simple Windows download manager which has enough features to please any computer user but, at the same time, it's very simple to use.

The program installs very rapidly and can be used the first moment after launching it. That's because the interface doesn't need any accommodation time, being intuitive and simple. After launching the application, the user doesn't have to configure anything regarding the program's functionality, as the configuration is set for best performance.

The user just needs to select his desired website and click on a download link. Free Download Manager will automatically intercept it and will ask the user where he would like to save the file. The program is able to look for mirrors when downloading files, ensuring that the file will be downloaded at the best speed possible.

Besides downloading files, Free Download Manager can also download Flash videos from the web. One just needs to add the link to the video for this. Furthermore, there is also a torrent downloading feature, which can download any torrent file from virtually any site. Free Download Manager can be configured to automatically disconnect the Internet connection in case one is using dial-up, exit the program or shut down the computer. This feature is useful for downloading large files at night, when nobody is using the computer.

Advanced users can take advantage of the configuration window, which allows customizing every single detail of the program's functionality.


It allows downloading any file from the web, by intercepting the download link. Besides that, it can automatically look for mirrors when downloading a file, for offering a maximum download speed. Furthermore, it can disconnect the Internet connection, exit the program or shut down the computer when a download is complete.


The program doesn't allow selecting the country for which the mirror will be searched. Free Download Manager allows you to easily download any file at maximum speed, by offering many more features than any other web browser download manager.
