Hi there all
Thought I would give the above program a try but the two download sites don't work within Netscape7.2. Would be interested to see if someone else has any joy.

I was able to get it from the simtel link fine (firebird 0.7). The other one didn't work

Try this: ftp://planetmirror.com/pub/simtelnet/win95/inetftp/stardown.exe

Stardownloader has a clip board monitor built in... so just copy the address to the clip board and star down will bring up a download dialogue box...

Stardownloader has to be active in the task bar...

been using it for bout 2 yrs now with no prob... but inside IE...

I knew that but you don't have to even do that as it will monitor your browser and automatically pick up any downloads.
I don't think it is quite as fast as GetRight but have not done any true test.
