Download Accelerator Plus is one of the most popular download managers currently on the market. It helps users download large files through a pleasant interface, while also benefiting from more or less significant speed boosts.
Installing the application requires a bit of extra care because it comes bundled with third party software that may change the settings of your system if you simply go through the setup clicking 'Next'.
Although not quite clean, the interface of Download Accelerator Plus has a key role in helping users benefit the most from its powerful functions, such as download resuming, virus checking and history browser.
The utility will automatically search several locations (mirrors) and use them for getting the files you need with increased speed. Also, Download Accelerator Plus integrates seamlessly with your Internet browser as it supports Internet Explorer 9, Google Chrome 15 or higher, Mozilla Firefox from version 8 up as well as Opera, starting with version 11.
Last but not least, Download Accelerator Plus also tries to step into the social networking world with a dedicated tool that allows users to post messages on Twitter straight from the download manager's main window. This way you can always keep your followers up to date with the files you are downloading.
Download Accelerator Plus remains an excellent tool for downloading files from the Internet and really manages to impress with the way it works. There is also a Premium version that contains several power features like 'Extreme Acceleration' or a comprehensive set of privacy tools. This version, however, isn't free of cost and you can obtain it by upgrading the free release.
