i actually prefer Internet Download Manager. it's the only DLM i've found so far that can max out my connection. FDM is my close #2, though. orbit, not so much.

I have been using this for quite some time now, and so far I have been happy with this. It is free, yea it hangs and I cannot end the process so I have to restart the machine. But other than that it works fine. I download videos from youtube etc, and download torrent files, it also has a nice converter that allows media convertion like save as mp4, or mp3 etc, it is limited in functionality though, but does as descent job. So far so good, .I haven't had the need to switch to another download mananger. One thing I have to highlight about this is that, it warned me when the download file was mallisious/harmful.

FDM is really buggy and low quality.

If you use it all day, you encounter bad bugs like GUI elements that aren't drawn, slowdowns in speeds cause of FDM's strange code etc etc.

I switched to Orbit and it works good...
