    Hi. I wonder if there is a multi-threaded download manager for safari 64 bit in snow leopard. I used to go with igetter on 10.5. But it doesn't work with 64 bit safari. Any suggestion?:confused: Thanks in advance.

    I second that.
    Want something that downloads with multi-connections mode like Free Download Manager, Orbit, Download Accelerator etc.

    Speed Download is paid. Any free one?

    Igetter is almost free. The only thing you pay is to close the pop-up window. I tried the trail version of speed download today. I had no idea how to make it integrate with safari 64 bit.

    Is it possible to run Safari in 32bits mode?

    Yeah, right click the safari icon in you application folder, click get info, and check the box that says open in 32 bit mode.

    not sure about iGetter but i was using Safari in 32bit mode with some other plugin and it worked fine. If it doesn't work just change it back to 64 bit mode. Nothing will happen by running it in 32bit mode.

    Yeah. For now I don't feel any difference between 32 bit and 64 bit browser. I should go back to 32-bit. Be back until most the plug-ins update themselves.

    By the way, what do u use to download some large files, say 2GB or more? Do u grab them down by the native download manager of safari?

    i can't say that i have ever downloaded that big of a file via safari, but i just use the default download manager.
