About flashget

how many people actually use it?

is it a safe and good download manager?

will downloading too fast like 800kb damage my hardrive?

thanks for helping

Downloading too fast will not damage your HD. 800 KB/s is not fast, in fact 16x DVD burning will use up to 22 MB/s from your HD.
FlashGet is safe and good and now free. I really like its function to save RealMedia and Windows Media streams (rtsp and mms downloads).

Download managers are pretty much shit, many sites simply wont work because they block segmented downloads etc (for obvious reasons). If you need one use Wackget or http://www.flashgot.net/whats otherwise just stick with the regular one in Firefox.

I use Internet Download Manager. It’s not, unfortunately, but it’s one of the best download accelerators.
