I am currently happily using MYIE2 as a browser and was wondering
if anyone could suggest a good/system friendly download manager
to use with it.

I want to download openoffice.org but the file is around 70megs which
is quite a large DL for my dialup connection. I don't want it to hang on
82% complete and disconnect or something... I was hoping to find a
manager to help if there was any problems with the DL.

I am running XP home....

Thanks.

Mantis.

Though a little old, and I am actually using Opera, so I don't need one, but from back in the day, I would use GetRight.

For memory, it was quite simple and was feature filled. I'm sure others would agree, but that's my suggestion.

I use Flash Get, which is good :)

I use FreshDownload from Fresh Devices - wasn't there a thread about this just a few days ago?

Star downloader!!

Works fine, but they just changed it from freeware to shareware.

When they do this, is it a sign of high demand for a good product and they want to cash in?
When will this happen with Google?

I use MyGetRight and fine for my needs and free. I like to have the sound on and hear that strange voice at the end say "Your file is done".

I use Net Pumper, there is a freeware version and it's a really good program.

Also if you're looking for Openoffice... Ithink you should be able to get it on a PC World CD somewhere, that should save you the download?
