This freeware, open-source application presents a new version with some minor bugs fixed and new features that really enhance its performance. Free Download Manager will let you have full control over your downloads, accelerating download speed to squeeze your bandwidth.

FDM works dividing files into several segments and downloading all of them at the same time, reducing significantly download time while taking the most of your internet connection. With FDM you will be able to download files from HTTP, HTTPS and FTP, now with the additional support for BitTorrent protocols. FDM includes a scheduler that will let you set the time for specific downloads to start, with the possibility to shut down the computer when a download is complete, and resuming broken downloads. It integrates with your antivirus program to analyze downloaded files and warn you in case they contain malicious code.

New features include: HTML Spider, allowing users to download complete websites or specific files from them, and the possibility of creating a portable version of FDM to easily use it in other computers or to take it in a memory stick, avoiding installation and enjoying its full functionality.

On the other hand, you can download flash videos from the most popular video-streaming sites, and save them in their original format or converting them into AVI, MPEG 4, WMV, etc. with FDM's built-in media converter. Once download is complete, you can organize your files in the most convenient way, in folders according to file types, names, and other criteria within its simple and intuitive interface.

Free Download Manager is one of the most complete applications to manage your downloads, probably the best among the free ones, and definitely an indispensable tool.
