    any recommendations for a download manager (like for downloading files from premium sites, instead of doing them through safari/etc). I used to use Getter back in the day, but it has not yet bene updated for el Capitan, I also see JDownlaoder as an option.
    There are some years older threads on this but nothing recent I could find

    How about Folx GO? You can search download manager in Mac App Store.

    For those who are searching for a download manager... Do yourself a favor and don't buy FOLX GO or other version of FOLX from the Apple store, the version download from the Apple store does not work!! That simple... :mad:

    FOLX is an excellent download manager but only the PRO version :(
    More expensive but it really works it can be download from its official web site @ -http://mac.eltima.com/download-manager.html

    Thanks
    Came

    Bringing this thread back to life....

    I just tried Folx (free version) and I got errors when trying to download several videos from a premium site. Critical error, HTTP not authorized, or something like that. Is this a Folx problem or do I need to change a setting? I used it with Chrome.

    Or, is there a better DL manager?
