Internet Download Accelerator Makes Downloading Fun Ride!

November 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
WestByte Software has announced the release of version 5.5 of their download manager - Internet Download Accelerator (IDA). Most everyone downloading files from the internet has experienced the sufferings that come from a broken connection. This may happen due to a disconnected modem or a system crash. Until the age of download managers there was only one way to deal with a broken connection - restart a download again, losing time and money wasted on a half-downloaded file. Fortunately, IDA offers a smarter solution.

Internet Download Accelerator gives you an ability to resume a disconnected download. If you have downloaded only a portion of a file and the connection is interrupted, the program will resume the download and get the rest of the file without restarting it from the beginning. This greatly saves your time and, of course, money! Another best thing about IDA is a unique technology that increases a file download speed. IDA splits up a file and downloads its several pieces simultaneously. This helps you get the most out of your internet connection.

Internet Download Accelerator gives you many other interesting abilities that enhance your downloading experience. It lets you play a video or audio file even when a download is not over, thus allowing you to decide in the very beginning whether to continue a download or not. You can also manage downloads and have different types of files automatically sorted out into categories like Archives, Music and Video. If you need to download a ZIP-archive, IDA lets you download its files selectively, only those that you actually need.

IDA integrates into file catalog enabling you to search for files and mirrors right from the program and get information about the most popular software, music, archives, documents etc. Having signed up you will be able to add comments for files, add files to your own Favorites available to you on any computer connected to the Internet.
