  • It's not really open source, and it's closer to malware than what the "team" acknowledges. Not worth it.

  • I've been using Free Download Manager for years--with FlashGot and Firefox, to grab "hidden" non-downloadable videos--and finally moved to FDM 5.0 Alpha. It is working absolutely perfectly for me. I quickly grew to love the new, clean UI after a few downloads. Definitely worthy of a beta label (or stable). TL;DR: The finest download manager around. Highly recommended. Thank you, team FDM.

  • using for long time. it is still good with every new version. I hope no new version spoil that impression.

  • With the Free Download Manager available for free I'm surprized that other paid download managers still manage to sell. Thanks to all the developers involved in creating Free Download Manager

  • Very good work , We ahve all options like IDM thank you to a team

  • 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.

  • Amazing project, thanks for giving out

  • very good project, thanks!

  • Installed FDM and found my homepage had been changed. If FDM is prepared to change my homepage without asking then I have no trust that it won't change other things without asking me first. Maybe it's good. But I ain't waiting around to find out. Installed Xtreme Download Manager from sourceforge instead. Tiny file. Working well. Well behaved.

  • Monetizer installs toolbars on your system. Since it is integrated into your system, you loose all control. Install Monetizer is for software creators who want to make a extra money when users install their program. The program should have at least 50 installs a day. According to a personal experience posted on the Internet, Freedownloader Manager is paid according to the scale below. 100 installs daily = 60 a month 500 installs daily = 300 a month 1000 installs daily = 600 a month 5000 installs daily = 3000 a month (all in dollars) Most of the bundled software are toolbars, They have about seven install packages available. So, you don't even know what these people are tricking you into installing on y our system.
