3. DownloadX ActiveX Download Control
DownloadX ActiveX Download Control is a free download manager that uses a very simple interface. After opening the download manager, you must simply click the plus icon and then enter the URL for the file that you are downloading along with a display name and a set of optional authentication credentials. The file is then added to a download list. You can use the interface to launch downloads in a specific order or to perform parallel downloads.
