Yesterday I was downloading a file that was about 200mb. It was a patch for Unreal Tournament 2004. I used one of those file hosting sites (filefront.com). When the download stopped at 40mb EACH and every time I assumed there was something wrong with this particular site.

Then I used another (similar type of download site) to download the same file, and it stopped at 40mb again. At this point I assumed that there was something wrong with the patch.

Today I was trying to download an image file from a friend that was about 100mb from megaupload. Again it stopped at 40mb.

Downloading the SAME files in Firefox 3.5 yields no problems.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Well Chromium is still "unstable" released, so there can be some bug.
You could try use the wget command to grab the file.

Thats true, but this has only happened recently (since yesterday) and I thought perhaps it was a known bug.
