What download manager do you recommend?

When downloading from FileFactory as a Premium member it is recommended that you use a download manager.

Download managers increase the speed at which you download files and also allow you to pause and resume downloads.  There are several popular download managers available, most of which are compatible with FileFactory. You could try:

Do not use FlashGet

We have had reports from some members about having their account details stolen after entering their login information into the download manager "FlashGet" by Trend Media Corporation Limited. We advise all users NOT to use this download manager.

Do not use JDownloader

With an open source framework, JDownloader is constantly being updated and improved, however we cannot guarantee that it is or will be compatible with FileFactory. Having said that, if you make sure you have the latest plugins downloaded from JDownloader (which it should do automatically), there is no reason why it should not work. We also do not recommend using JDownloader given its open source status, and it often contains malware.

Do not use Internet Explorer

For security and compatibility reasons we do not recommend the use of any versions of Internet Explorer.
