which shows lot of info .
I want to add another item that shows hex value of data entering the output file while download is in progress.
This way , to me , it appears the computer is working hard to grab the file .
I know if the data rate is in KB/s then it will be hard to output all of them . So , let us say it will show byte at regular interval of 1KB.
Wouldn't that be cool !
