    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.

    wow download them all for firefox is so much fast it went from 50-60kbs to 500kbs blazing fast wow. I really cant believe the difference and pauses and you resume when you please now I can get Open Suse 10.1 in a few hours

    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.
