Does exactly what it says: Drag and drop an URL on it, and the download begins. Really nice and simple piece of software.

What was the point of this app? It was simple and nicely done however I didn't notice any changes from firefox's own download manager built in!

It has potential if it only increased the downloads or something which it didn't it was normal just like firefox's d manager.

I'm sorry I am not so tech savy but as I understand it, its merely some sort of front end downloading app, if that's the case is that not what many browsers have built in?

My criticism in the face of other downloading apps is this app is still quite limited as others have a multitude of actions. But again most browsers including firefox have similar download managers bilt in as I am using one!

And when your downloads blow up because the browser crashes, you'll be annoyed, whereas if my browser crashes, I'll be glad the downloads were in get.
