Light Downloader is an all round download manager which supports FTP, HTTP and HTTPS. This download manager lets you boost up the download speeds. This program actually splits the file into several parts and then downloads those parts simultaneously.

Technically, this program increases the download speed up to 600%. Like all the download managers, this program also lets you pause and resume the downloading process. It can handle all the broken downloads.  The fact that this program supports FTP, HTTP, HTTPS and Proxy makes it a robust download manager.

Its scheduler lets you schedule the files to download. You can allow this download manager to automatically download the files, and switch the computer off when the files are completely downloaded.

There are few more features which make Light Downloader more special. It integrates well with the antivirus program installed and your computer. So, the whole package scans the files automatically once they are completely downloaded.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Hey there, I have wondered about buying the software DubTurbo Beatmaker and was hoping anyone could give me an actual bona fide evaluation of the program. Almost all of the internet sites that supply product reviews are in fact internet marketers offering the computer software and so i doubt that the evaluations are honest. Many thanks in advance for any information any one can provide.

    Hello there, I have considered buying the software DubTurbo Beatmaker and was hoping anyone could give me an actual genuine assessment of the application. Almost all the websites that supply experiences are literally affiliates advertising the software package so I question that the critiques are sincere. Thank you in advance for any information everyone can offer.
