Hey,

I just switched to Mac last week. Now, I don't need to tell y'all how much I'm loving this.

The only thing I miss about Windows is IDM (Internet Download Manager).

I use my Windows 98% of the times for internet and 90% of my internet work is done with IDM.

Not just download accelerator, but link catching, live video downloads, audio downloads from ANY website is what makes it all easy. It's one stop for all my downloading - tv shows, videos, youtube, movies, mp3s, apps, everything.

Any alternative for Mac that does ALL?

Thanks!

Be very careful with download managers. A quick search of the forum will show you that they are often more trouble than they are worth.

I, actually, came across it but never installed it.

Does it catch videos and audio files?

Yeah, I read the same post somewhere. I'm guessing it was you there too. Could me brief me on this?

Not too sure. The Mac dl manager is good enough for my needs with the MAS, iTunes AppleTV so i have no need for one. Its just what google bought up. But do take heed in what vansmith has said. He know his stuff.

Another good download manager is "downthemall" - it's a browser extension for Firefox and Chrome. I use it in conjunction with FlashGot, and have yet to see any sort of trojan/virus/etc be downloaded by it (I use it on both Windows and OS X machines).

Yeah I tried that. It doesn't accelerate downloads much. But I guess if I find nothing, I'll stick with that.

Frequently, these get uninstalled improperly and end up precluding users from downloading anything at all (people will commonly get blank pages when they click to download files). Generally, with a reasonably fast broadband connection, you shouldn't need to use any DMs anyway.

I don't use it for acceleration. No real need for that with faster broadband connections. I use it to download files to specific folders based on type and use the FlashGot extension to download videos.

512Kbps (download speed 64KBps with IDM, 50-54KBps without)

Does AppTrap help uninstalling completely?

Will it, otherwise, affect my system majorly?

If you install something with an installer, use the appropriate uninstaller and not something like AppTrap. If it's a simple "drag and drop" install, you can just trash it most likely.

Well, that is what I've been doing so far. I just got an update of AppTrap and that's when I read about it, hence asked. I didn't get your first line, though.
