Speed Download offers multithreading so you can go online and download as many files as you want, simultaneously. It works with Internet Explorer, Netscape and Opera Web browsers (with more browser support coming soon), Steven Mullin of the Speed Download Team at YazSoft told MacCentral.
Speed Download 1.8.1 has an enhanced/faster plug-in for the classic Mac operating system and Mac OS X. It also adds features such as proxy username/password support; a log file management (under Mac OS X); an enabled menu shortcut to the log file; support for the Chimera browser (under Mac OSX); improved file size handling; smoother FTP connectivity; and a new “Check for Updates” sequence. Mullin said that the update also offers more improvement on the performance/integration with all browsers and that the disconnect and quitting sequence has been tweaked.
Speed Download costs US$20 for a single user. There’s also a double pack license deal that gives users two licenses for $30.
