Personally, this is one of my favorite applications. Oribit downloader eliminates the need to have several different programs installed in order to download files from various social media sites and one click hosting sites. As of 1/3/2009, Orbit downloader supports over 35 online services including (but not limited to YouTube, Yahoo! Music, Google Video, Veoh and more. Another good aspect of this download manager is its size – the setup is only 2.15MB and even when its running in the background, takes very little amount of resources.
