Is there any smart download manager in Linux?


To anyone who use yahoo web mail, no download manager
can download attachments except smart download.
So is there any kind of these program in Linux:

*Note* that program must have all of these ability:
+ Download acceleration.
+ Download from site which only allow to download from browser.
+ Intergrate in popular browser (opera or firefox).

Do you want a POP service for yahoo mail, or?

I don't quite get what you mean with the combination of the two mentioned in your post.

I use Mr. Postman for popping my Yahoo mails, which also downloads any attachments in the mail. For a regular download manager, try d4x, in which you are capable of pausing a download at any point, changing the source URL around, and then continuing the download from there. No intergration for as far as I know, but this one is the best free one I have found.

I'd say give d4x a whirl and see if you like it.

I have tried a number of download managers, and none of them gave me the option to change a URL midway, save for this one that is. I find it a requirement for a good download manager, especially on downloading large ISO files.

If anyone knows of any better ones, do tell, as I am also always looking


Also.. you could take a look at Igloo FTP. I use the Pro version trial for uploading things to my website, but one could of course also use it to download things with, provided the precise URL is known.
