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.

I dont know which adware it detected, basically avast identified one of the dlls as adware during the installation process.

I get Win32:Adan-062 detected as adware by Avast.

Quarantined/Deleted it and FlashGet still works.

Its a good program (period). If it bloody has spyware, remove the spyware. No big deal.

Apparently the adware warning simply concerns fgiebar.dll, which adds a FlashGet toolbar to IE. Nothing to worry about but they should make this clear on their website.

I will happily use this now that it's freeware, you can get a plugin for automating downloads in Firefox, even though it's called an Opera Plugin, here

http://www.flashget.com/en/browser.htm

Just point to your Firefox plugins folder during install.

Thanks for the headsup (Y)

FDM remains for me.

I'll try it out. I've been using GetRight but I am bored with it.

/edit

Yea, both Avast and Spysweeper caught the "Browser helper object" which was the toolbar. Prevented it from installing and working fine.
