Free Download Manager

It's been stable, has resume support if site does which is why I use it. I get a lot of "kicks" from my connection if downloading an .iso, like Ubuntu, very rare it finishes or has errors so the resume is great for me. Otherwise I usually don't use things of this nature but it's been great to me so far.

I used Orbit prior and I didn't like it. I had more errors than downloads in a week, didn't want to work with Firefox very well, or even IE for that matter, so I finally got fed up with it and uninstalled it. Been using the above mentioned since.
