Best downloads with resume function


I am looking for a linux downloader that will save the files to my box. It must have a resume function and remember the point it was up to after I restart the computer.

kget is good thanks as are all of the others suggested here but i like kget best thanks.

Though i must say i dont use konqueror, mozilla firefox still beats it but it is chasing well.
