TheStuff.net: GNOME Transfer Manager [Review]

[ Thanks to Kevin Breit for this link. ]

"Since switching from Windows to Linux last June, I had been looking for a feature laden download manager which functions natively under X Windows, has a queue for downloading files sequentially, supports resuming on dropped connections, and is roughly equivalent to GetRight in Windows. My friend then informed me about GTM (GNOME Transfer Manager) 0.4.4. He assured me that I would like it, so I decided to give it a try. GTM, without a doubt, fills the slot of the download manager I was looking for...."

"GTM has a small applet which will conveniently fit into the GNOME Panel. When left clicked, GTM will prompt the user for a URL to download. After the user feeds GTM the information, it will then open the program and lets the user start the download, or leave it in queue for later download. It would be nice if the applet showed the progress of a download or the average of all the downloads which are running."
