    So the dealio is that I used Getright on my PC for ages. Now I have a Mac so I'd love a download manager for one functionality.

    I'd like one that lets me replace the URL of the download to resume downloading a file when it craps out.

    I often download from my ISP's mirror server as it's free towards my download quota (yeh, laugh at us Aussies.) However, sometimes the download craps out and I can't resume, since the server only keeps the links active for 5 minutes. So what I'd do is just try downloading the file again, but copy the new link into Getright and it'd resume the file using the new URL.

    I'd like an app that does this for Mac, but I can't find anything so far.

    Camino (web browser) does this to some degree automatically--if you resume a failed download, it will take up where it left off... most of the time. Not 100%, unfortunately, which has annoyed me on trying to complete a download from a REALLY flakey site that drops a connection after about 3 minutes. But it's better than nothing if there are no better options.
