I was wondering if there is a download client for just files from web sites. Is there any suggestions. (Im not talking about bitorrents) I would like to keep it running and pause it at my will. Thanks

It's the thought that really counts!

I've just discovered Wiki's a good place to look for album art/details but not for obscure stuff, though...

I think download them all will do okay for me. Exactly what i was looking for basically the pause and resume. When I go to school they limit to like 19kb max maybe 30 if you lucky 10 is regular. 40,000 dollar college and we get slow wifi.

The download window in Safari works as a download manager.

Just hit Command+Option+L in Safari and a window will pop up. Drag any URL into that window to download the linked file.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
