Magic Download Accelerator is a fast download manager and it is a good choice for active surfers and those on dial-up connections. Magic Download Accelerator raise the download speed by up to five times. The neat interface offers several ways to start retrieving a file: clicking a link in your browser, copying the URL to the Clipboard, or dragging the download to a semitransparent floating window download basket. The interface also displays the download speed and lets you control downloads. You can grab HTML pages, and peek at the contents of ZIP archives to see whether you want to download the files. The program is accessible via a system-tray icon or a browser toolbar. When running in the background, the utility doesn't take much memory. The program supports Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers. Dial-up users should appreciate Internet Download Accelerator's ability to automatically establish and maintain connections or to schedule downloads overnight.
How it works:
Click to download a file & MAD will accelerate your download by finding the fastest sources (websites) for the file you want, then splitting the file into several pieces & downloading them at the same time, making the most of your connection speed. This is just the beginning of what MAD can do for you.
