Internet Download Accelerator is intended to make your Internet downloads faster. Beside an incredibly reduced download time, this tool provides many other advantages over standard downloaders. For example, it can resume broken downloads from the point at which they were stopped. Moreover, it can automatically sort your downloads according to file type, which simplifies the process of managing them. You can also create custom categories.

The application is very easy to use, as it has the typical layout with a tree-view structure sorting files by type on the left, and there is a right panel where the files and their status are displayed. It also has an FTP Explorer that supports navigation on FTP sites.

You will probably like its ability to trace your activities and identify URLs when they are copied to the clipboard. Likewise, it can be integrated into all main browsers to monitor and manage your downloads. Furthermore, it supports various Internet protocols, such as HTTP, HTTPS and FTP. Another advantage is that it allows you to schedule your downloads according to hours of maximum speed, less computer activity, etc. It can also download movie files from popular video sites. One more thing I find very convenient is its site manager which manages your passwords and lets you download complete folders. The program speeds your downloads by dividing them into chunks, as most downloaders do, but it can also find mirrors and check their current download speeds. Finally, it is capable of performing Internet searchers right from its interface.

In general, whatever your Internet bandwidth and type of connection is, Internet Download Accelerator is a very suitable for helping you get the most of it. Unfortunately, it does not seem to support downloading torrent files.
