Uget My best Download Manager

Filed under
Software

I have been using GNU/Linux for two years so far, and I'm using Ubuntu (GNOME). Over this period, I have tested a lot of download manager applications; unfortunately, I can't find the one that suits best for me, because what I have in mind was a program which more or less is simple, lightweight and practical. I don't want a download manager which is crowded with features nor a primitive one and certainly I don't want one that works via a command line/terminal!

So, I had been experimenting with a number of such applications, but for one reason or another I can't rely in one of them!

But when I tried Uget, I found it the best download manager for me ^_^

It is a Program that is written in GTK + (the same libraries used by Gnome), lightweight, simple and has a clean interface, practical, easily integrated with Firefox through flashgot, support queue download, Simply it is the perfect program for me Smile

Here are some of the program features




trouble downloading with Uget

I know its simple but I'm missing something. When I download from hotfile, the rar will have an extension of html. (ie www.hotfile.com/bestfile.rar.html) but uget never downloads the file, only the url.

I know the file is there because if I click the link, Google Chrome begins the download.

What gives? I can't find any support for this on their website. Thought you could help.
