Maxel free download for Mac

Maxel2.5.1

Native download manager and accelerator.

Overview

Maxel speeds up your downloads by splitting each file into parts and downloading them simultaneously, maximizing your bandwidth. Maxel also manages your downloads, starting the next download when bandwidth is available and re-trying ones that fail automatically. Partial downloads are no problem either: Maxel saves its progress and can resume your downloads even if your mac restarts.

Features
  • Drag-and-drop snippets of webpages into Maxel to download any links within
  • Browser Extensions: Kickoff downloads from within Safari or Chrome (others coming soon)
  • Built-in Browser: Log into file sharing websites from Maxel's browser and let Maxel do the downloading
  • Compute MD5/SHA1 hashes of files to detect corruption
  • SSH public key authentication for SFTP
  • API for adding downloads in scripts
  • Maxel supports the following protocols: HTTP, HTTPS, SFTP

A shame that the trial is outdated. But I suppose it’s still better than nothing.

Another app store piece of junk that doesn't support Firefox and doesn't say so until you waste your money and find out It's completely useless! I'm really surprised nobody on this forum ever mentions the free Firefox add on DownThemAll. Been using It for over a decade and find It very reliable.

The program still lacks some of the features, but it is considered one of the best programs to download files for Mac, I hope to add features from the developer promised.

Built-in Browser is good. It is splendid above all that a developer copes for a request flexibly.

This is hands down the best download manager I have used on my Mac. It is blazing fast and downloads using http, https and sftp. So, I use it to download huge files from my seedbox because it allows to resume interrupted downloads. It also has several useful features including batch downloading and checking the MD5 hashes of downloads. The built-in browser makes it easier to add download links to the app. The developer is super-responsive and updates the program frequently with new features.
