I presently use Stardownloader with FlashGot as an addon in Firefox. I've been pretty happy with it but not particularly happy with the way it acts on some sites, particularly when I try to download financial data from a bank site.
I realize that some of these programs are loaded with spyware, so I guess I am just wondering if anybody has a favorite they like.
Preferably it'll be a free program.
Thanks
Floyd

I use IDM or Internet Download Manager,it has a nag screen and also a bad
Trojan from some sites but if you scan the download (with EWIDO i still use)
you should get a clean one. Geeks gave me a bad one.The program splits
any download into 6 from different servers then reassembles it,Fast Download
There are plenty of others especially with firefox add ons

Of course downloading anything from a Bank Site is Verboten,the security
won't allow it. You can print.

That ofcourse is depending on the status floyd has.. If he an log in as a "customer he is allowed to.. Furthermore if somebody puts fiancially data on a public website he or she is taking the risk of people downloading it.. This according to the "misappropiated content "laws of the internet.. :thumbsup:
