NetAnts is a download manager designed to maximize throughput by making multiple FTP or HTTP connections, each of which downloads a separate part of a single big file.
NetAnts allows you to easily perform batch downloads from the Internet. Easy to use and very convenient, NetAnts allows you to surf the Web without waiting for downloads to complete. You can manually add remote file names to the queue or let it capture clicks from your browser. For added convenience, you can send the program to the system tray and leave a very small always-on-top "drop-basket" on your desktop to accept URLs that you drag and drop from your Web browser. You can also activate a Clipboard monitor that automatically grabs file names as they're copied.
Other features include multithreading support, corrupted zip fix, resumed downloads, URL snatcher, Traffic regulation, auto login into secure sites, HTTP/FTP/SOCKS proxy support, categorization of downloaded files, a handy download scheduler and full logging support.
