Cool :-) Thx for the link !
I landed up in the link suggested by you
while doing 'Get More Add-ons' from IE 8.
I could find a list of download managers / accelerators -
I am not sure if they are free.
I checked 'Lightning Download' . I did not
find any info about the license in the brief
description provided in the below link -
But, while installing, it seems to convey
that it is a shareware :-(
I tried 'Star Downloader Free' version 1.45,
It also did not talk about the license in the
brief description provided on website so
i had to go ahead with downloading &
installation to know about it completely
even the though the Name of the add-on
has a term 'Free'.
But, 'Star Downloader Pro' is not for free :-(
I checked description for other download
accelerator add-ons like 'Faster downloader' ,
'Download Toolbar for Microsoft Inte'.
but, most of them do not convey the
license details in the brief description.
I suggest that the license details should be
clearly mentioned in the brief description so
that user need not download the entire add-on.
Is there any Free download manager add-on ?
Any ideas ?
