  1. Peronally I think every dl manager I have tried for linux is terrible. especially d4x. Damn ugly and not user friendly. plus has development not stopped on d4x? Gwget barely worked for me at all. Aria gui had the best features and worked with rapidshare (although did crash quite frequently). I use aria2c cli for rapidshare now as u can parse a plain text file with links and use http authentication as well as resume and multithreaded sessions.

    Downthemall causes 100% cpu usage as well as disk thrashing

    Gonna try this, hopefully it’s stable and does everything I need. Someone need to write a direct clone, and stable, of flashget, then I will be happy :)

    minimum requirements for a dl manager:
    Pause and resume
    easy browser integration
    multithreaded sessions
    throttling globally AND per file
    http/ftp authentication
    data integrity check
    low system resource requirements

  2. i keep prefer aria2c cuz its incredibly FAST.
    I mean aria2c is the fastest download manager i ever tried in ubuntu.
    the drawback is: it runs in CLI/Terminal :(
    but if you use firefox with flashgot addon, it can detect aria2c for the default download manager….

    firefox + flashgot + aria2c are same fast as IDM in Windows OS
