Absolutely wonderful...and a few really annoying flaws Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I love this plug-in. In general, it works as well as several download managers that must be purchased, and I am very pleased with it. To assist in future development, I want to point out one very annoying thing that it does.
If you are downloading files 1 - 30, enter file number 5 twice in error, and then leave, you're pretty much screwed. Once it downloads file number 5 and it begins the attempt to download file number 5 the second time, a pop-up very intelligently asks you what you want to do (rename, cancel the duplicate, etc). The problem is that everything stops until you respond. So, you return 3 hours later to discover that you have downloaded whatever was complete by the time file 5 finished the first time (1-5 files), and you have a few partial downloads, all of which are likely cancelled via time-out and have to be restarted. So, after 3 hours you now have to begin downloading the remaining 25(+) files when what should have happened is that the request for input should have timed out, and worst case, you may have to download 1 file.
There are one or two more that I've noticed but cannot remember at this time. I'll post them as I remember them. Again, I love this plug-in overall and appreciate the efforts of the authors. Thank you for your time.
