Just like Mozilla Firefox emerged as the open-source alternative to the domain of Internet Explorer in the web browser field, Free Download Manager (FDM) has been presented as the free web accelerator and download manager par excellence.
Speed up your downloads with FDM
This tool is the result of the effort of a development team to create a program that helps us accelerate and manage our Internet downloads without having to pay or endure intrusive advertisements. The list of features that it brings with it is overwhelming, proving once more that paid products don't always have to be the best.
100% safe and open-source distributed under GPL license.
As an accelerator, it uses the well-known technique of splitting the files to download them simultaneously, managing to increase the download speed of these files up to 600 per cent in some cases. But it is the download management part of the application that stands out in comparison with the rest, with added functions with the possibility to download all kinds of Flash videos from websites like YouTube or the function that allows to upload files to a server to be able to share them with our contacts.
It also has the capacity to download BitTorrent files and it can communicate with a remote control so that we will be able to manage our Internet downloads from our armchair. A totally free open-source program that will surprise you due to the incredible amount of features that it offers you to improve your downloads.
