6.9.1 (See all)

It's the fastest and most elegant tool that allows you to download files from the Internet up to 10 times faster. It's a unique all-in-one tool.
FDM includes a BitTorrent client and Download Manager. It can be integrated into your browser, then FDM will monitor and catch links from your browser interface directly into FDM downloads list. FDM can download any kind of data you want: torrents, videos, audio tracks, images, ISO files, etc. Downloads of different types (music / videos / documents / pictures) can be automatically distributed to different folders. For example, all videos (including YouTube videos) will be stored in one folder. You can also add tags to downloads and then filter downloads by tags, so, it will be much easier to find a particular download on the downloads list. A special notification will let you know when the download is completed.

You can always limit the maximum download speed using Traffic Limits mode to download files and watch a video online at the same time. Moreover, FDM is compatible with all proxy servers. Don't hesitate to download videos using a proxy.

Personally, I like that a download can be resumed even if it's not a torrent file. Usually, if you start downloading a file using a browser, the browser should stay online till the download is complete. A browser crash or unstable internet connection make it almost impossible to download a big file from a browser. FDM solves the problem successfully. Free Download Manager can resume a download where it was interrupted. It saves an incredible amount of time, nerves, and money (especially, if you have a limited tariff traffic).

Last but not least and probably the most amazing things are that FDM is completely free and 100% safe!
