I've been looking for a good download manager. The ultimate one for me would allow you to copy/paste multiple links at a time into it. And allow you to download sequentially, like tell it to DL like 3 files at a time, till one finishes then start the next one on its own. The only one i've found period is D4X, maybe it can do what i want, i don't know haven't figured it out and can't find any instructions/tutorials anywhere.
Using Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy, and firefox

**EDIT** happened upon DownThemAll. Does ALMOST everything i wanted. Has one click adding and can limit the simultaneous downloads, just haven't figured out how to put a cap on my speed yet. Close enough for me though :thumbsup:
