This program is the best because it has preview and DL of ZIP files. No other D manager can do that. Yes FG is better in everything else but lacks something very important like this feature. This is why this program deserves 5/5!

I purchased Mass Downloader in 2002 for $20. The program is still being improved, it still costs $20 and I am still getting free upgrades. Now that's about as close to being freeware as a supported shareware program can get.

And by the way, I still prefer Mass Downloader over all of the programs I have tested between then and now.

I tested 6 download managers, including Orbitdownloader, Download Accelerator Plus, Free Download Manager, FlashGet, Internet Download Manager and this Mass Downloader, and this one was the best: it could download all from the trickiest sites and links, that many of the others could not get. This is the best download manager i have used, and i purchased the license, -the price is affordable.

I think that the purpose of rating programs here is not about being generous or not (see the review below), but the rating should be based of how well the programs work and how good they feel. There's no sense to give a poor rating to the program just because it's shareware.

Why anyone would pay for something like this when there are apps like FlashGet and FreeDownloadManager, which are FREE and FULLY feature functional! Sry, but I have to give it a 1. Not in a generous mood today I guess... :S

Does the job, but only as good as some freeware programs. Lacks some options that other programs like getright and download accelerator plus have, but I don't much like either one of those anyway because they're too cumbersome. Overall it's worth a try. This will suit the needs of most downloaders.

Wow you're all genius people, if you couldn't change look. If you rate program from screenshot then you're truly a ignorant, like these who rate programs lower, because they're shareware or demo. Do you think everything have to be freeware or open source ??? If something isn't for free, then its bad, i think people deserve money for they hard work, after all we all have to eat. I have been using mass downloader for a long time, its realy great downloader, i have tried reget, getright, gozzila, flashget and few others. I liked mass downloader most, even if its shareware. If you don't like look of office, you can change it right now. At least give it a try, before you rate it from screenshot or because its not freeware - its realy great app !!!

massdownloader is a great software but FDM does the job for free...

i remember getting files from ZIP's (mostly rom's) when MD was still a freeware.

I never understood how people can stand programs with the ugly Office 2003 look. I'm a graphics designer and get really distracted by that.
Enough reason for me to look somewhere else.

Free Download Manager has the same stuff and is freeware so this one gets 4 for being shareware.

Very stable downloader and company (Meta Products). Excellent customer support with an author not just interested in denero. He's always open to customer's comments and suggestions. And finally, not spyware in any shape, form or fashion.

If you're paranoid of what you are downloading then you shouldn't connect to any servers.

the new version is fast ,userfriend and has a better GUI ,but it lacks the mirror search which is a must for all downloaders .also i would like to see a small window when a file is downloading
for showing the summary .

screenshot is little bit outdated... since version 3 Mass Downloader looks very different.

Imo, MD has userfriendly interface that is polished more from version to version. There is no useless buttons or misleading signs. MD is simplicity combined with excellent fuctionality.

sorry for eng
