A download accelerator is a program that helps a computer or a PC download content more quickly over Internet. In a way, it is a software that optimizes the download process. There are many popular free download managers available over the Internet for download. The latest to enter this camp is EagleGet.
EagleGet is a freeware that uses multi-threaded technology to accelerate downloads by splitting files into several parts and then transferring them simultaneously, thus increase download speed scientifically. The program is compatible with many browsers such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera and Firefox.
On launching the program, you will be welcomed with a clean interface. The navigation panel towards the left lets you manage the files needed to download.
In case you require additional options to manage your files/resources, you can access them through the right-click context menu. For downloading online videos you just need to move the mouse cursor over the video player and click ‘Download’. That’s it! The video you want to download automatically gets downloaded to the hard disk of your computer.
Most video downloading programs only support few video sites. Moreover, users have to copy the URL address to the software in order to get the video. EagleGet bypasses all these steps. The program not only downloads programs from popular online video websites but also support HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, MMS and RTSP protocol.
If you would like to track the progress of the download, you can access the float window. For this, just double-click a file name and the program will happily display the task in the download queue.
Once, the download is complete, the program shows up a pop-up window and even plays a sound to notify the user that download is complete. You can then open the file and open it to play immediately.
To configure other settings and additional options you can access the ‘Configuration’ window. The button is present on top of the main window. It allows you to specify the download directory, choose resident behavior and do lot more.
EagleGet integrates well with most browsers and is free for personal use.
