    Reviewing 5.1.23 (Jan 24, 2017)

    Version 3.x worked great. I used it for years. I'm sorry to say that I had to abandon it and start using IDM. Version 5 of this program just plain sucks. Half of the features that version 3 had are gone.

    Sorry FDM, it was great while it lasted but you had to ruin a good program with this dumbed down version

    The new version 5 is as simple as a baby software and it is so huge compare to features included.
    I'll continu using V3 till they revise this unusable version

    Reviewing 5.1.15 (Jul 19, 2016)

    I've used FDM for a long time, and love the 3.x versions. Why they had to dumb-down the interface in this new version and remove valuable options is beyond me.

    Version 5 is not ready for prime time and should still be in BETA stage, if they are going to leave most of the functionality of the program out. Terrible.

    The new version looks nothing like what's pictured. While I can applaud the intentions behid the devs, the new version is harder to use. By a lot.

  5. 1 out of 5 stars

    Reviewing Beta (Apr 13, 2016)

    The screen-shot is misleading- this is the GUI of Free Download Manager version 3 which is excellent, while the Beta (FDM 5) looks terrible. I give 5 stars for FDM 3 and 1 star for FDM 5 (the abominable Beta).
