"Ever have a large download "bomb" on you half way through. Ever get disconnected from your ISP when you are almost finished with that 64MB download that has taken three hours to get this far. You may want to try a download manager to make life a little easier."

"Today I'm testing WebDownloader written by Koshelev Maxim. After downloading the file and unpacking it the installation process was simple. I needed GTK+ and GLib v. 1.2.7 which just happpens to come in the distribution I have installed right now. So with a simple make install and a short compile this program is ready for testing."

"This program has a simple to use interface. With a simple click on the add new download button brings up a window where you enter the URL of the download you want, where you want to save the file and the name of the file you are saving. It also has the option of a user name and password for those password protected download areas. You can also set time out settings, depth of recursion, proxy settings, and more."
