Make downloading a snap with the help of these five tools


uGet is an open source, multi-platform (Windows, Linux, BSD, Android) download manager with plenty of features, including the ability to queue downloads, handle multi-connections, do batch downloads, set speed limits, pause/resume, multi-mirror, and specify global defaults. Since you can download multiple streams, you can easily snag all those ISO images you need quickly, without having to deal with multiple browser tabs open at once.
