Read the Privacy Policy VERY CAREFULLY https://www.macpsd.net/pages/privacy-policy/ IN PART "If you are located outside Russian Federation and, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to Russian Federation and process it there." The program also collects Cookie information, in addition to "..mobile device unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browser you use, unique device identifiers [i.e. your phone or computer ID] and other diagnostic data." The company can share any and all of this info with 3rd parties, the Privacy Policy is carefully worded, but if you read between the lines and analyze, there is nothing that explicitly says that the company WON'T share any of this data. Specifically, it says they won't share with any entity that doesn't have 'ADEQUATE CONTROLS IN PLACE...' which is basically a legal disclaimer as there is no definition of what 'adequate' means...adequate can mean whatever they choose to define it to mean. Look at the release history https://www.macpsd.net/pages/version/ since April of 2019 to April 2021, basically every release just ways "Bug fixes and stability improvements. " no specifics. If you have Little Snitch (and every Mac user should), it would be intgeresting to see what IP addresses this program contacts outside of the sites you actually visit.

Гораздо лучше, чем качать файлы через браузер, особенно когда инет плохой или загрузка с медленного сервера. Есть все что нужно: докачка, многопоточность.

I didn't found a sorting option in whole app and preferences and my downloads get lost in a mass of downloads. e.g. sort by date which is the most important one. Moreover, I like the download list to be bigger so that not to make any mistake when clicking in one.

Very good app. The best thing about it is that you can create custom AppleScript scripts to allow you to perform different tasks before or after downloading something. It allows me to easily transform the links (proxy) I download before it starts downloading files. There are some aspects that need improvement such as chunk downloading which sometimes chunk the files too small and makes the downloads fail as some servers do not allow chunking download files so small, but other than that, this app is awesome.

I've DLed v2.10 from their website and I can't say I'm satisfied: sometimes it won"t launch and when it does, it's not better than old Speed Download 5...
And sometimes it refuses to quit!
The aspect is not bad, but I think it still needs functional improvements (tested on OS 10.9)

I've been using PD for years and was always very happy with it. However, the last two or three upgrades have resulted in a fairly unstable product when attempting to download multiple files. I reported it to the author who acknowledged that there had been a problem but the it was resolved in v7. Sadly, the issue remains. Hoping he clears it up soon.

Very good downloader. Was always looking for a modern alternative to iGetter, and this one can be it. One thing is missing, though: context menu support, right-click/CMD-click on a URL or a link to a file you want to download, and select "Download with Progressive Downloader", or even additional services like with iGetter (download selection, download all). I tried to make my own Service, but it doesn't work with all URLs, especially when it's not a clear full URL.

MacUpdate Desktop incorrectly installed v1.8.1 even though it said it was updating (my v1.9) to the current version of 1.9.3.

Recent versions were crashing but the last 2 have been stable. I need an ftp client that does segmented downloads to maximize speed. This one does. A multithreaded ftp app on the Mac is not common. That is the advantage for me.

It will be nice to have feature such as ask upon updating, not automatic install, because the recent update 1.9 keep on crashing upon updating mirrors.. ...

The following is not a criticism of PD, just offering some speed test results. I have no agenda. YMMV, these are the results I got. I ran some download speed tests of various products, Windows and Mac. The download was the 10.9.5 combo update from Apple. I chose this file because it's large (almost 1 GB) and hosted on Apple's servers, hopefully eliminating slowdown due to host server. I ran the tests around between 1am and 2am to eliminate overall web traffic as a factor and slowdown on my ISP's network. I have a rated 50Mbit line, so that should not be a factor, and prior to starting the tests, I ran Speedtest.net and got 49 Mbs down and 7Mbs up, which is nominal for my ISP connection outside of peak times. For each test scenario, I ran it three times, the times shown are the lowest of the three tests (fyi, there was minimal variance in the three tests for each setup, so IMO the times shown accurately reflect the efficiency and impact of the download manager, and minimal influence due to Apple's Server, internet traffic in general, or my ISP. Mac, 10.10.1 Progressive Download-Mac 3:55 (3m 55 sec) Firefox Mac using FF built in download manger 3:20 Firefox Mac using DownThemAll FF plugin 3:00 ------------ Windows 8.1 Free Download Manager 3:22 FF Win using FF built in download manager 3:15 FF Win using DownThemAll FF plugin 2:55 I used PD with all default settings OOTB, freshly installed, same with DownThemAll. From what I could see, PD was establishing multiple connections. I had first tried PD back in the Snow Leopard days, had pretty much the same conclusion, that there were faster alternatives. I just happened to notice today on MAcUpdate that PD had been updated and thought I'd try it again. If you are Firefox users, you should check out DownThemAll (unavailable for Safari or Chrome). I will say that PD definitely shines in many areas (restart, resume, scheduling, filtering) so by all means there is more to consider here than just speed.

Since the "end of SD" , Progressive Downloader is the best download manager for the Mac. I was with 1.7.2 installed but right now I'm using version 1.7.5 from the developer site and everything is running fine!!! Both versions are great!

I;m one of those old fashioned Mac users that actually read instructions and read me notes before installing and using an application. Where are the read me notes and instructions. I installed this application and suddenly it's doing things on its own, what the ****

Have been using Progressive Downloader for a year+. The new v1.7 is good and stable on 10.9.4. One thing that would be VERY useful as a feature to add is the ability to add notes / description / comments about each download. We often download stuff planning to get to it later, but when we get to it, we find the file is named something like 'setup_fols_ele.dmg' or 'psd.dmg' or something like that and needless to say it is too much to guess. Also helpful would be some font control or system font link for the display list. I often work in a dual OS environment - with Windows and Mac OS X. It seems in the area of download managers FreeDownload Manager available on Windows is the one to catch up to for all other DLMs. Many thanks to the developer of psd.dmg.

No instructions provided on developer's web site or in app. I guess you're suppose to just guess. Wish I had that kind of time to waste.

I assume that the developers meant for the ‘Bug Fixes’ section above to read as if all those bugs have been fixed in this version. Right now it reads like those are all current bugs in this version.

I've been using PL for years and have been very pleased with it. I like the integration with Firefox--haven't been able to get it to work with Safari. However, the most recent release (1.4) keeps giving me an error message that the PL file in Library>Application Support is read only and so the app can't launch. I tried opening the permissions but that didn't solve the problem and I've had to revert to an earlier version.

I reviewed Progressive Download a few months ago and complained about problems downloading large files. Following the response from the developer, I reinstalled PD and, after a bit of tweaking here and there (and after an update or two from PD) those problems stopped. Overall, I like Progressive Downloader, but I still can't use it as I would like to. Here are some problems that I'd like to see addressed: Chrome integration: PD simply doesn't work properly on Chrome. I uploaded a video to a CMS news feed, so now every time I log in PD intercepts the download (but it's not a download!). Since there is no way that I can find of telling PD to ignore certain cites, I can't find a workaround for this. On Chrome, PD is just a little overzealous. Web locker scripts: PD has a few built in scripts so you can use it with a few web lockers. I have no idea how these scripts are supposed to be written, so setting up PD for any other lockers is rather difficult. This comes down to the dev adding more support info or opening up a forum so users can help one another with this sort of thing. Download location: Rather than being asked where to download a file for each download or having to have all downloads dumped to one folder, I'd like to specify a download location for certain file types. Proxy support: sometimes I need to download files from sources like EBSCO, but I can't count on PD for downloading. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Speed Download was much more consistent in this regard and I really don't know why. Plug-in functionality: When you install the plugin, you have a choice of three browsers but can only select one. Once you've installed the plugin for one browser, you can't install the plugin for another one without first uninstalling the plugin. The problem is even more complex because sometimes PD will install and uninstall the plugin for all browsers. I can't find a way of using PD with only one browser. (PD only works well with Firefox as far as I'm concerned) I don't, like some here, have problems with PD using up system resources. When working properly, I find it to be faster than other download managers.

Since my last post in December, Progressive Downloader 1.3.5 has panned out as a major dud. It’s got so many problems and missing features that it’s not even worth listing them here. I appreciate that the developers offer PD for free, but it works so poorly that I’d rather do without. So, I’ll just move on to one of PD’s competitors — this time I’ll try iGetter. Too bad Speed Download’s developer is such a halfassed quitter because it was a decent download manager on Mac OS 10.6.8, but now it’s just abandonware.
