Download management with flareGet

Under Control

Article from Issue 151/2013

FlareGet accelerates your downloads and avoids the consequences of disconnections while downloading files.

Browser features for downloading data have improved since the earliest days of the Internet. Chrome and Firefox now let you pause individual downloads, repeat them if something goes wrong, or resume them if they are interrupted.

If you frequently download large amounts of data, you are still well advised to opt for a separate download manager, to gain full control over and accelerate all download activities. One such free tool is flareGet (see the “Installation” box).
