Internet Download Manager 6.21
An easy way to turbo-charge your download speeds

Internet Download Manager is an easy-to-use tool that will quickly accelerate your download performance.

The program works with all the main browsers: IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, even Mozilla and Netscape. Once installed, clicking a download link in any of these will launch Internet Download Manager, rather than your usual browser "Save As" window. Then all you have to do is click the "Start Download" button and the program will grab a copy of the file at the maximum possible speed.

This process works by dividing the file up into pieces, and downloading each chunk simultaneously. While occasionally you'll see little difference, for the most part the technology makes a real impact on performance: it can easily be doubled, and the developers say you can see up to a 5x improvement.

The program offers plenty of extra features, too.

An integrated YouTube grabber helps you to download local copies of FLV videos from YouTube, Google Video and other video sharing sites.

A site spider allows you to, say, grab all the images from a specific website, or perhaps an entire site for offline browsing.

Download Resume means that, if the connection is lost, broken downloads can be resumed later from the point where they left off.

A built-in scheduler allows you to automate downloads at the time of your choice.

A Speed Limiter means you can restrict the program to use only a defined amount of your bandwidth, so that browsers and other web tools won't be reduced to a crawl. And the list goes on.

Problems? As there are some very capable free download managers around, Internet Download Manager's price looks a little high. We think it's better than the competition, though, so if you want the maximum download speeds and the most useful features then you really should give it a try.

What's new in 6.21?

- Added Windows 8.1 compatibility.
- Fixed compatibility problems with different browsers including Internet Explorer 11, all Mozilla Firefox versions up to Mozilla Firefox Aurora, Google Chrome
- Improved FLV grabber to save videos from web players on web pages, Google Video, MySpace TV, and other popular site

Verdict:

Relatively expensive, but worth it - Internet Download Manager not only delivers great download speeds, but also includes a host of valuable extra features, each of which will save you considerable time and trouble

Far to expensive

Posted by: Eric Forster, 20 January 2012 02:59

I really like this program but its just far too expensive when there are free ones to download. I wouldn't mind paying a one time fee but £20 or more every year!

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
