I just use the firefox add-on DownThemAll.
If you're on KDE use Kget.

Download manager for linux

You can try out flareGet ( a recently released download manager for linux).It is multi-threaded and supports upto 32 segments per download for download acceleration. For browser integration you can use flashgot.

I use Jdownloader, but you need Java for that.
