Download managers are designed to take over download request from various applications and process them. Download managers allow multiple files to be downloaded simultaneously. Additionally, download tools offer such features as:

  • Support for different protocols, for example, FTP or torrent

  • Download priority settings

  • Download scheduling

  • Option to limit download speed (setting bandwidth limits allows for more comfortable browsing)

  • Splitting large files and multi-threaded download option

  • Advanced download management features (for example, option to download files from repositories or automatic alternative file location search function)
