    A refreshing download manager that does everything good and is open source. Those who miss the old flashget will love it.

    I've been using FDM for over 6 years; it is one of those programs I am lost without. It is so easy to download from websites (it allows you to highlight a group of links and download them all at once), and it allows you to get your full bandwidth. If you are getting toolbars in your install, or the website you are downloading it from has a bunch of those sneaky ads you are in the wrong place! FDM is one of those programs that is frequently faked... it IS open source after all, so that makes it easy for them. Make sure you are getting it from freedownloadmanager DOT org SLASH download DOT htm. The ORG extension is important part of the url.

    The actual app itself is quite good (v3.9.2 anynow, v5 isn't so hot).. but everything else about FDM just smells fishy. For example.. The website is littered with "helpful links", these dodgy spam-like click-traps that take you to their "Software Review Site" make FDM look like just a scheme to attract potential victims. Their "Software Site" has the notoroius "Click Here For Free Scan/TuneUp!" ads and the "Reviews" and software sitelinks look like pay-per-click referral moneyspinners. Together with the fact the app has previously "phoned home", and with the rumours of adware inside, one gets a bit nervous about installing it. The FDM "team", whoever they are (they don't say) claim to be "open source" because the code's trunk is available on SF. In fact their site here at SF is a joke - nothing has been updated, and worst of all the only binaries available are those they choose to release on their website - the SF binaries are long obsolete. Even on the main site, nothing beyond the current builds and a few plugins are available for download. No documentation. Regardless, the core code is good - I just wish the people behind it didn't make FDM look so dodgy. A decent, fully linked website.. proper docos.. and some mention of who is behind it all. that would go a long way.
