Just looking for recommendations on these two kinds off apps.


Download manager-I've used Flashget in the past. It's OK so I could go back to it. I'm just wondering if there are any others that are worth looking at and why.


Wallpaper manager-I've noticed that many of the wallpaper managers strictly work with photos from the hard drive. I'd be interested in something similar to Google Screensaver that pulls wallpaper from the web, even from news stories. It looks like there was a Google Wallpaper for a while but it closed. I used Eyetide several years ago but they became a spyware trojan so I guess that's the other thing. Spyware free, please. It's too bad. It used to be a good product. I noticed one called Cool Wallpaper but I dunno.

For some really neat Wallpaper, check out Visual Paradox Free 3D Wallpaper.

Depends what sort of wallpaper you are after. For really beautiful photos, I use and recommend the PRO Shots from http://www.webshots.com/g/

For downloading, Star Downloader for IE7 is pretty good, but I usually use DownThemAll in FireFox. DTA will d/l a page of high quality pix in seconds.

Cheers

Personally I swear by Internet Download Manager, but it is not freeware.
