Best free alternative to IDM (Internet Download Manager) Part 1

IDM is the most popular download manager among Windows users since its capabilities of downloading large files quickly, Pause and Resume downloads, and YouTube direct download etc… So However, since it is a premium software, you have to pay for that. If you are not willing to pay for that kind of a software and but you need most of it’s features with a free alternative, yes, you have come to the right place. It’s called EagleGet. You can find the all features of EagleGet download manager below.

Huh… Fair enough?

Wait, I know that you can download a cracked one of IDM. Why welcome Viruses and Trojans into your PC? But hey what about the FDM (Free Download Manager). Few years ago it was a pain using FDM. But now I can say it really works very well and you can have a faith on it. So I hope to write a blog post about FDM in near future. Until then, give EagleGet a try, at least you don’t need to buy it. It’s Completely Free.  Yes, you heard it correctly. But It’s AD supported and I believe that it’ll not going to be a big deal. So bye-bye IDM.

Go ahead, Download and use EagleGet. You will love it as much as I do. Happy Downloading…
