View Full Version : flareGet: the new IDM alternative option for Ubuntu/Linux

September 16th, 2012, 08:35 AM
I was googling around for the best download manager out there for Ubuntu, but many of what I've tried have failed me :(
Until I found flareGet and oh boy! IT'S SO AWESOME! -still in beta though-
It's truly an IDM alternative app for Linux and it's the only one out there with multi-thread technology up to 16 segments/connections just like IDM :D
I know that flareGet is currently may looks like a simple download manager (its GUI) but name one for linux that has a frontend, multi-thread downloading, file segemntation with up to 16 segments/connections and truly very fast just like IDM Internet Download Manager for Windows! (IT CAN DOWNLOAD YOUTUBE VIDEOS NOW!)
You would take a first look and usually say flareGet mimics Orbit Downloader!
Well, flareGet doesn't mimic Orbit Downloader, actually flareGet and Orbit Downloader both mimics IDM! xD




It is an extremely fast download manager
It uses a robust Dynamic file segmentation algorithm to speed up the download
HTTP-Pipelining: In addition to dynamic file segmentation, each segment is further accelerated upto six times
Smart Segments : When one segment ends, it starts another segment to help terminate another segment more fast
It supports upto 32 segments per download
Add or remove download segments dynamically
Automatic retry when a segment or download fails
Resume support for broken/paused downloads
Clipboard Monitoring
Queue the downloads to download them later
Limits the number of simultaneous downloads, when one download ends, it starts another automaticall
Multi-protocol support
Intelligent file management
Video download from most of the sites is supported through Flashgot addon

Aug 05, 2012 Initial support for FlareGet introduced in latest development build 1.4.8rc1 of Flashgot.
Aug 30, 2012 Youtube video correct file naming will be supported in the next release of Flashgot.

Already compiled to .deb & .rpm
Sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/flareget/
Website: http://flareget.net16.net/

P.S. Source code isn't available yet on Sourceforge! Also website is still under construction.
Another P.S. I am not the developer, I am just a supporter <3
