    Topic. One that can help you resume whenever you need it.

    Thanks!

    Do you know you can resume downloads with Safari?

    Safari does that already, doesn't it?

    [too slow..

    or do you mean one that you can resume when the connection craps out? Safari does get confused by that sometimes

    DownThemAll is a great extension for Firefox.

    You can organise multiple downloads from one page in a couple of clicks. and resume as needed

    I've always liked this one. Safari may have some sort of resuming feature but in my case its never worked properly. Thankfully I have a fast enough connection to where its seldom needed.

    that is exactly it.

    i was downloading a 170 mb file and the electricity shuts off (i have a back up, BUT IT'S NOT WORKING PROPERLY... odd)

    anyways i boot the pc back up and there's no option for me to resume the download as the download window shows no downloads in progress

    I prefer iGetter, it's really easy and really fast!

    But you can use it as a trial, there's no expiry date.

    Does iGetter allow you to list a number of URLs with minor variables and then download the given URLs?
