    If you need a good download accelerator I've always used the DownloadThemAll firefox extension. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201

    Hmmm interesting piece of software. I don't really need it since Ubuntu download speed are 10% faster than Windows using the same hardware.

    i use speedbit in my windows OS for streaming youtube, fast indeed.
    Now, i lookin for a way to install it in my ubuntu OS. Im new to Ubuntu. Im not sure how to install va22.exe(speedbit). Tell me if you find out.

    @lupadigit:i know a way to install the exe file,try wine

    but i dont do that on principle,u see what is the point using ubuntu if u r dependent on wine ,that sucks thats hyprocris


    better option would be to use windows

    @frenske:from where did u get those stats?i never read abt them before
