Maxel is a capable Mac application designed to accelerate your download speed. It does that by splitting the files to be downloaded into smaller parts and by automatically searching for download mirrors that provide faster transfer speeds. Using this tool will eventually help you maximize your bandwidth. This program might prove to be of good use whenever you wish to download multiple large files from the Internet and you require a quicker solution for completing the aforementioned task.

All you need to do in order to work with this app is to enter or paste the download links onto the app's "Add URLs" window and click the Start button. Maxel supports HTTP, HTTPS, and SFTP data transfer protocols, allows you to pause and resume downloads whenever you require, and immediately offers you the data you need in the designated destination folder.

The application provides you with detailed information regarding the status of any file that's being downloaded. For instance, it displays a list containing the connections of all file segments and their correspondent download progress.

Another good aspect about this program is the fact that it can resume unfinished downloads even if you shut down your Mac or lose Internet connection signal while downloading the files. Hence, you don't need to start the download process from scratch all over again, you can just resume it from where you left off.

To summarize, I'd say it's definitely worth acquiring this download accelerator for Mac PCs. Maxel provides you with a very simple and efficient solution for increasing the download speed for your files, gives you access to plenty of useful features, and comes with a reasonable price.
