Internet Download Manager (IDM) is a tool to increase download speeds by up to 5 times, resume and schedule downloads. Comprehensive error recovery and resume capability will restart broken or interrupted downloads due to lost connections, network problems, computer shutdowns, or unexpected power outages.

I don't know, EagleGet is free and does pretty good. Has the same download capabilities and video capture.

They changed update policy: if you buy it - you will get free updates for 1 year. Earlier it was life time licence. This company wants your money so bad ... lol
The price betanews states is not correct. My credit card was charged 26eur and it is a bit too much for 1 licence for 1 year, I think.

Internet Download Manager is the best I have used, even though it cost you money, but this one time expenditure is worth it. I have used since long and its works smoothly and without any glitches on windows 7 and windows 8. Its recent version supports the windows 8 and IE 10 integration.
IDM takes down download from Chrome, I E , firefox instantly and downloads it at an acclerated speed, I personally felt it increased speed three-five times on and average which means a lot.
You can pause the download and continue it the next day, you can also resume downloads in case of network failure or any other cause.
Without saying much further would recomend you to download the software as it comes with a free trail for 1 month and experience it for yourself. I bet that you would be fascinated by its effecient functioning and would surely purchase it. IDM's support is also very nice and they provide timely update to keep you on the pace with upgrades of operation systems and browser.
Surely, in one go I would say ------ IDM rocks!

With a half decent internet connection download managers are now an anarchism. Needed if you are still on dial-up but if you are you have my full sympathy all 200 of you. Fast fibre is now the norm & even with ADSL it's still unneeded.
