We've used many download managers over the years to download stuff from the Internet and we've got to say that FDM is one of the best we've ever used. It is a powerful, easy-to-use and absolutely free download accelerator and manager. Moreover, FDM is 100% safe, open-source software distributed under GPL license (not that it matters if you are a pirate anyway). This is particularly useful if your workplace, school or university has banned the installation of download managers; FDM can be installed without administrator rights or you can easily create its portable version and avoid the need to install and configure the program on each computer.
