It would be hard to find someone who doesn't use a download manager these days. If you require any or all of the following: faster downloads, scheduling, resuming incomplete downloads, bulk downloading, downloading media and URLs; then yes, you definitely need a download manager!
- FlashGot Link downloads the link under the mouse pointer
- FlashGot Selection catches highlighted text/images, attaches text to anchor conversion, and even automatic password insertion to password protected files
- FlashGot All grabs and dispatches all links on the current page, then filters and selects files for batch downloading
- FlashGot Tabs does the above function for every tab page
- FlashGot Media, the status bar icon flashes when there are any streaming video or audio clips on the current page, for transferring media downloads (single stream->left click, multiple streams->right click)
- Build Gallery, captures media from serial contents scattered on several pages and synthesizes them to a gallery on a single page, for easier and fast "Download all".
