    Download managers?

    Only human...I'm always looking for something better.

    What download manager do you you use?

    Years ago I used GoZilla and it rocked, but then just refused to work on my system one day and never has (plus I heard it's spyware).

    Been using the non-banner GetRight for about a year now. Seems to work fine, could be a better GUI though.

    What do you use?

    I used Download Accelerator for quite a while. Really liked it and then it just started acting funny all the time, even after reinstalls. For about a year or so now I haven't been using any.

    What do you guys use when you're FTP'ing then?

    For uploading I use WS_FTP, for downing I've tried using the IE interface but it just bites. Lots of sites won't even let you in unless you have a download manager.

    download accellerator. according to AdAware, it's spyware free. I'm using both the registered versions of both programs too, so that may make download accellerator lose it's spyware.

    for FTP, I use Flash FXP....I've used LeechFTP, Cute FTP, BulletProof FTP, WS_FTP, etc....and to me, Flash FXP has the best features, most user friendliness, etc..beats all the others.

    been using both programs for over a year now.
