Download manager.

Back when I used Mandrake 8.2, there was a program I downloaded in rpm form from texstar called aria. It's a really nice download manager. Unfortunately it isn't there no more, but you can download it from http://aria.rednoah.com

 

Of course, for command line users, wget is THE program :)

wget is especially useful in downloading web pages with its links, e.g. online books or tutorials. just type:

 

wget --recursive --noparent http://server.domain/dir/page.html

 

to download page.html and all pages that link from it, but only under /dir directory. Very useful :)

 

a good alternative for wget for the ftp protocol is lftp.

 

Also, there's caitoo as an alternative for d4x but as far as I know it hasn't been updated for a while (?).

In KDE 3.1, there would be KGet. Pretty good download manager, the only thing I miss in it is better integration with Konqueror, something along the lines of Mozilla download manager.
