Hi,

I recently installed Internet Explorer 8 on Vista,
but, in the Tools\Manage Addons\Accelerators
section, i do not find any download accelerators.

Are there no download accelerators for IE 8 ?
Is it not free ?

I searched the internet and IE 8 FAQ, but did
not find clear info. Any ideas ?

Thx in advans,
Karthik Balaguru

There might be a problem with the find more accelerators webpage right now.
About every third time I click 'find more accelerators' The page fails to
load.
Try this link three or four times: http://www.ieaddons.com/gb/accelerators

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 -
http://www.ieaddons.com/gb/search/?search=download

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 -
http://www.ieaddons.com/gb/details/Time_Savers/Lightning_Download/
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 ?

Other option can be of mentioning the link
to the website that has description of
license of the accelerator add-on.

Currently as these details are not explicitly
present, the user has to search in the
search engine using the accelerator
name and visit their website to know
about license details of add-on.

Okay,
Is there any Free Download Manager
accelerator add-on ?

Thx in advans,

I searched for:
open source Download Manager accelerator
in google and found this at the top of the list:
http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/

It looks interesting.

I'd be interested to know if it really does speed up downloads

Updated info .. I installed the above, (the cut down version) . but it had
no browser plugin that I could see, which made it not instantly easy to use
... Also when I closed the program I had some connection problem . it may
have been entirely coincidental of course ..

May I suggest you install Firefox browser and use this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201

I have not tried it .. but Firefox has many other very useful
Addons/plugins, so there is sufficient prior evidence to expect that this
plugin will do what you want.

Lot of Free Download managers available
like http://www.speedbit.com/ etc..
But,I was looking for accelerator add-ons
(related to download manager) that are
being supported in IE 8 for Free -
http://www.ieaddons.com/gb/search/?search=download

I was just trying to see the speed & features
provided by Free IE 8 accelerator add-ons
before trying other free download managers.
But, It seems that there are No Free IE 8
accelerator add-ons for Download :-(

Thx in advans,
