Is this freeware news? Honestly I have never used it so I'm not being sarcastic...

Wow! I've been using NetLeech all this time but it's been a memory hog on larger files! Is this one less of a memory hog?

Is it free free? Or is it free with a crap load of spyware and adaware?

Just installed and seems to be clean.


@oddcrap

FlashGet was always my fav. I tried IDM inthe past even the last version (5.03) but i still like FlashGet for speed, interface etc...

Is this worth "upgrading" (used in the loosest of terms) from Free Download Manager? I mean, I have no problems with FDM.

Man....flashget (used to be jetcar)... Back in the day of 56k flat-rate and 2hr cut offs..

I used this for hefty downloads, left it running overnight to download 'huge' files. I set it to redial my ISP when the connection dropped.


Might check it out again. It rocked back then (with the ads removed via adaware), I'm sure it rocks even more now

Should change the title from "FREEWARE" to "ADWARE"

I just installed it on my other computer thinking that it was clean....adware was detected before installation even completed.

What you people want to do is up to you, but I've already uninstalled it.

as far as I am aware, FlashGet has always been free but banner supported (not adware)

Just got it to integrate into Opera 9. Ran a quick scan but found nothing suspicious. There aren't even ads anywhere in the program window. (to primexx: what adware did you detect?). Memory usage was below 2mb on my ageing system. However, Download Express still remains my favourite - it has never created a corrupted file for me.
