    Interested to know if people have stopped using them for small files when they have speeds of 50kb's+

    I have had getright since v1 and it was handy for files over 2 megs on 20k-50k.

    Now I am downloading larger files quicker over 20 meg most of em i was just wondering if the market for such download managers would fade out when 1 day 1 gig connections will be the entry for internet connections.

    I used get right to download a fake service pack, thats all, everything else just hit up arrow or save as to desktop.

    Just wondered if ne1 else has come to same conclusions.

    I use FreshDownload ONLY when downloading Linux ISOs, nothing else.
    The connection is just too fast to bother using a download manager/accelerator for small files.
  3. I use Flashget for large downloads, but I agree. No point fiddling about with it for the smaller downloads.
