    Hello,

    I am looking for a Folx Download Manager alternative

    The problem I have with Folx Pro is everytime I have to format my Mac in order to perform a clean install, I have to contact with Eltima for a new serial number, and since some apps from this developer were Infected With Malware (Eltima Software's Elmedia Player and Folx)
    https://www.macrumors.com/2017/10/20/eltima-software-infected-with-malware/
    They have lost my trust

    Not From Mac App Store, Not From softonic.com or similar sites, macOS High Sierra ready, I really don't care if is payware and of course NO MALWARE!!!

    Thanks
    Came

    I'm a big fan of iGetter http://www.igetter.net/index.html, had it nearly 4 years now and hasn't given me any major problems. If you use the newer Firefox, the extension as installed doesn't work but there is a bit of a workaround on the forums to get something going, on Safari or Chrome it's all good though.

    Hey man. I installed it a while ago and used it for some time. It's looks like a great app. Thank for recommending.

    Although I can't get the Safari extension to work. Chrome works perfectly. But Safari doesn't work no matter what. DO you know any solution?

    I'm loving it. IMO it's better than Folx.
    I'll update this thread the day I find a safari extension that works.

    It's £2.99 (UK price) - don't think there is a Safari extension
