    Thumbs down The fastest linux downlaod managers ever

    Hi guys, I tested many linux downlaod managers to find any of it alternative to IDM for windows and I found it, they are Aria2c and Axel.

    I made comparison of various tools and programs and I found the fastest ones did'nt have a good GUI like Axel and Aria2.

    Axel
    Aria2c
    Wget
    DownloadThemAll
    Downloader for x (D4X)


    Same versions in ubuntu jaunty res.




    the ISP speed:
    512 KBit/second

    Actual speed:





    the test URL link:
    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.6.31-rc2.bz2




    Experiment:


    Axel


    How to type command:


    axel -n 20 URL
    -n 20 = Parallel connections (like IDM)


    I typed:
    axel -n 4 http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.6.31-rc2.bz2
