    Default What's your favorite linux download manager?

    I personally use GNOME gwget, but what is your favorite? I'm creating this thread out of curiousity to see if there is a better download manager. I generally use a download manager because of the better resuming support than just Firefox's download manager, as I have an unreliable internet connection.

    I use DownThemAll because of the (small) speed improvement.
    Although my internet connection is pretty reliable I don't want to waste downloaded data to be lost when somehow the connection goes down.

    Imagine downloading an iso file of a few Gb, one percent to go and . . . Lost!

    I like prozgui (where ProzGUI is a frontend for ProZilla download manager), but there are users on our forum who are strong advocates of aria2.

    The prozgui site has been down for a while, but the software comes with openSUSE (as does aria2).
