    what are you trying to "manage"?

    i know there are folks making money by selling "download managers" to
    Windows users, but since i've not used windows since about '95 i can't
    imagine what there is to 'manage'..

    i mean, i start a download and does...what is to 'manage'?

    admittedly, if it is not something like a few megs of .pdf i find via
    Firefox and wanna look at _now_ i use wget (which will automatically
    restart a stalled or partial download via ftp, hhtp or hhtps)..

    maybe that is what you mean by a "download manager"?

    in a terminal, see

    [CODE]
    man wget
    [CODE]

    there are probably GUI front ends for it, but having not tried one i
    can't recommend one over the other..

    try this:

    If as goldie says you are looking for a gui style 'download manager' (ie it will resume your download if unfinished) look at FlashGot for firefox.
    You can set it to use curl or wget.
    Even a command-line ftp has always been able to resume broken downloads.
    The beaty of flashgot is that you don't have to remember a long site name together with login details - it manages/remembers this for you.

    As goldie says, there are a lot of gullible windows users who will pay for anything.

    I use aria2.
    It has a GUI as well, but I prefer the command line:

    aria2::gui
