I've used this program before but for a while there was no devoplemnt on it so I kinda switched to browser default browser and forgot about it. Well now it's back!
... Today I was trying to download some mp3's from a web site of some russian band ("Gosti iz Buduiushego" wor those who know) and it kept breaking on 60 or persent. End every single time like that, so annoying. If you restart the download it sometimes gets higher percentage done, but sometimes not. So I desperately needed some download manager so it could resume bacause firefox, explorer, free download manager and many many others didn't support resume on this site. It just simply sucked. All of them gave the maximum speed of 60-90KB/s
Then I remembered about Flashget. So I tried it. Holy crap it was fast!!! The first file was done in some 10 seconds with speeds of 250KB and more !!! ...
Anyway, the new version is absolutely free and very very fast. There is an extension for firefox that works with it seemlessly that's called FlashGot. Here is the site for the actual program.
[Technical crap: It splits the file into many pieces and launches separate downloads for each one which gives it great speeds, I think it even launches them through proxies so that the site that limits to 2 connections a time can go very fast.]
P.S. No adware or spyware. Enjoy. :)
