Mozilla has a download manager program if that is what you were referring to, never heard of prozilla though.

And about cracks, etc, we don't associate with warez on this site. If you want to trade programs that cost money or the such and to obtain for free, you'll need to go to another site or forum for sharing cracked/warez type programs.

And let's not forget D4X (Downloader for X). It works similar to Getright for Windows, although it's not quite as good. Find it here:

It's not GPL I don't think, but doesn't cost any money. Well worth a try.

(Uses GTK2)

SHAREWARE???????no shareware and cracks in linux.The word is GPL.
also,prozilla is a download accelerator.for download manager,opera and mozilla provide download managers.anyway,wget is the most usefull thing i have seen.(You know how I downloaded mandrak 9.1,just put 'wget -b [url]' for the 3 isos in my college lan(24hrs open),logget out,went to sleep,and came back the next day,to see that all the 3 isos have been downloaded neatly!!).
