I tried FDM - it didnt work very well for me at all. When downloading HD trailers from Yahoo Movies you basicly cant pause. The place where you put the refferer on another tab shich is a bit of a pain. and most of all i can copy and paste links into FDM. In flashget you basicly just press CTRL+V and it brings up a new download with the clipboard contents as the link. Sometimes if you paste a series of links it will bring up the bacth download dialog box as well.

I reverted back to Flashget 1.73. Seems like it does the best job for me.

I couldn't stand FlashGet when I tried it. Too many bugs, sloppy english / text, and occasional crashes. I am currently using Free Download Manager w/o issue.

ME too same here. Switched to FDM ( beta 6xx ) from FG & FDM is cool

I dunno, the recent builds of flashget are full of bugs

For example downloading from a proxy with authentication via https doesnt work at all

And the worst thing of all is that Flashget for some reason now doesnt split files up into parts properly

That said, orbit seems to have features lacking :(

Seems like FlashGet is still the best download manager around

You know, in each release they say "Fix some bugs", do they mean that we're expected to fix those bugs?

I've stopped using Orbit now because without the scheduler its useless for me. Scheduler bug aside, there are many other bugs like the one in which your downloads stop/slow down around 90%. Then the fact that you can't make it to automatically schedule downloads when a new url is added, and many other small things like this make Orbit really, really inconvenient to use.

Honestly, I see no reason to use it over FlashGet. FlashGet's development has been racing ahread, it's been far more stable than any other download manager.
