WinGet 3.0

Tilgore Kraut - January 29, 2008

WinGet is a download manager that can increase download speeds by up to 300 percent. You may automatically resume broken downloads if your connection is lost or if your computer accidentally shuts down.

Pros: WinGet download manager supports both ftp and http servers. One is able to queue all downloads in one go, the application will ensure downloads are reliably completed via unlimited retries and individual monitoring of each download scheduled. Even when there are breaks in the download the package is able to resume at appropriate points. WinGet lets you browse around the ftp site chosen to decide the pieces you’d like to download.

WinGet gets integrated into the browsers Internet explorer, Opera or the Firefox and operates as the default download manager. It is integrated into the right click menu.
Download speed can be tuned through parameter settings such as number of threads operating the download and simultaneous files being downloaded. In this age of multiple cores, whenever one has spare power, it could be utilized for speeding up the download process. The application is able to work through proxy servers too and communicate through the firewall.

Cons: Whether downloads get speeded up to 300% or not is questionable. This could not be measured. However, qualitatively the download speed does get speeded up.

Overall a easy to use application, easy to learn, fairly well designed it is a 4 star item.
