JDownloader Review

Fernando Ortega
An open-source download manager
A review of JDownloader by Fernando Ortega

JDownload is a freely distributed download manager and file downloader built with Java. A very rare breed of its kind, JDownloader supports the automated downloading of multi-part files from services like Rapidshare, MegaUpload and the very long list of over 100 other services which JDownloader currently supports. It can also fetch files from social networks like Facebook.

The main plus point of using this program is that if you're frequently using hosting sites like Megashare, you're now able to bypass the endless onslaught of ads and annoying popup and popunder ads you see on this sites. With that said, you're able to import CCF, RSDF and DLC files easily.

This download manager isn't only useful for the popular feature of grabbing all the files in sequence from one-click sharing services, but also for its support of video sharing services like Vimeo and YouTube. Grabbing the content from these sites has become quite easy if you like JDownloader take over the task. Another feature this software has become famous for includes its own anti-CAPTCHA feature which easily fills in CAPTCHA forms for most one-click file sharing web sites.

Another feature of JDownloader is the support for premium accounts which are normally available for purchase from one-click hosters. For those with premium accounts, you're certainly able to take advantage of the faster bandwidth speeds you're allotted even though you're not using Internet Explorer or Firefox.

There is a JDownloader Premium Database available.

Overall, this is a very import tool to have for users of file hosting services as it saves time and aggravation. If you're a member of a forum which shares hosted files, JDownloader is indispensable.

JDownloader can increase the speed of downloads, download multiple file parts at once and pause and resume downloads.
