    Firebird's built-in download manager. Don't really need anything else on a high-speed connection :)

    I have to agree with Nets on this one. FireBird works great.

    Wget for most things.

    But I've just installed Safari 1.2 which supports resuming downloads, so we'll see how much longer I use Wget for :D

    I use freshdownload for large or medium files. mainly use a dlm becuase i can queue them up, also I get bored waiting for things to download so sometimes i just quit them and do somthing else :)

    Getright is probably the best one I've come across.
    Easy to use and nearly doubles my download speed (can get 6kbps now:D)
    BitTorrent++ is quite good but I'm not sure if that counts...

    I use Download Accelerator Plus as well. Think I just like the visual effect of seeing multiple connection to a server/servers to get my file quicker.
