    Hi, I was wondering if somebody could recommend a lightweight download manager that also ties in with safari. I know firefox has something like DownloadThemAll. The main use I'm going to have for it is downloading large files with rapidshare, that are divided into like 50 parts. A program that adds a cotextual menu to safari would be the ideal solution and it also needs to be able to resume stopped downloads and have a queue for batch downloads, ie download only 4-6 downloads at a time out of many.
    Any help would be very appreciated.

    I think you should have a look at Macheist and the Speed Download application! :) … (I'm not sure if it'll do everything you want, but I know it integrates with Safari). Hope it's what you need! :)

    Download Queue???

    I just found a program called Download Queue 1.1 that looks pretty good. I'm not sure if it resumes broken downloads but it looks good so far. Unfortunately I haven't been able to test it more because Rapidshare is down today.
    Anybody have experiences with Download Queue.

    It's more lightweight than speed downloader which seems to throw in everything but the kitchen sink as far as features, most of which I don't need. I just need something to queue rapidshare downloads.

    Yea, it looks simpler, and I agree that Speed Download is TOO much! :)

    I'm not sure how well Download Queue integrates with Safari though? … (only one thing to do = Test! ;))

    It adds a contextual menu. When you right click a link, it adds the option to add to download queue and just adds the download to DL Queue. Right now though it seems pretty buggy for me, it crashes kind of often.
