Download Accelerator Manager is intended to help you manage file transfers from the Internet to your computer. Its main purpose is to reduce the download time required mainly by heavy files, such as audio, video, software and large documents. Moreover, it allows pausing and resuming downloads. The tool has a nice interface, which has quite the same layout of other similar tools. In a tree-like structure, jobs are classified according to their status (unfinished and finished) as well as file types.

A new download task can be started by entering the URL. In addition, the application can also grab it automatically from your browser. Luckily, the most popular browsers, such as Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer, are supported.

The developers of the program claim that it can increase your download speed up to 35 times the standard speed. They say that this is because their download manager not only splits the files into several parts but uses other smart algorithms, such as dynamic segmenting and connection reuse; and that it saves time by not needing to append the downloaded segments.

The tool can be customized to suit your specific needs and conditions. In this regard, it is possible to set a proxy and even provide credentials to use it. Likewise, the program can help you download data from password-protected sites by allowing to use a password and storing cookies. It is also very convenient to schedule downloads to start at a time when they do not affect your browsing speed.

All in all, Download Accelerator Manager is a great tool that deserves a try at least. It is much faster than the download managers built-in web browsers. Besides, it includes MediaGrabber, specifically designed to download media files from the Cloud. Unfortunately, it has some limitations as it cannot download torrents, which is supported by some applications of its type. The program has a free version that you can use without any limitations, except that you cannot set download speeds higher than 10x. So, if you want to take advantage of all its potential, you need to purchase a license for its Ultimate version.
