Re: Download Manager: Useful?
Download managers/accelerators increase the download speed by establishing multiple connections with each one downloading a segment of the file: 4 segments means 4x the speed (some/many/most servers limit the speed per connection for downloads).
DownThemAll! can also download everything from a page, or just the things on the page you want.
Another feature I use is the auto-rename, since I always download to the same directories and some file versions always have the same name.

I agree. I used Downthemall back in the day. Was useful. Now, I swear by one called Flashget. Never download a file, especially a big one without it.
One file from a known fast server, maxes my whole connection. All 27.5 of it. Done in minutes.
