Flashget is a well-known downloading utility. The new version provides support for multiple languages, enables to apply skins and includes the XP enhancement tool to optimize downloads. Flashget is more than a download tool. It also acts as a bit torrent client with batch file download facility. This application replaces other bit torrent clients and download managers. The new version is attractive but it lacks a lot of features compared to the 1.x versions of the same application. There are some missing features, such as the site browser, managing downloads database, torrent creating, applying downloading rules and the speed limit mode. The developer seems to be more focused on the appearance and multiple language support for the program, but neglecting the features that were available in the older versions.
I have been using FlashGet for about two years and consider it to be the best combination with Firefox Browser. Also a great tool for Torrents. But I am not quite happy with the latest version of this application.
