From the Speed Download home page: "Often your download speeds are far from your theoretical maximums. Sometimes this is because the Internet is generally clogged up, or because your ISP is overloaded. But sometimes it's because the server you are connecting to is only giving a certain amount of bandwidth to each client. Speed Download tries to get round this by using up to 32 simultaneous connections." Speed Download requires any Mac with Mac OS 10.4.11 or higher.
Version 5 added significant new features and speed increases; here are some highlights:
Version 5.2.18 makes the following additional changes:
Speed Download Lite is a stripped down version of the Speed Download 5 download manager, for $5 less. Features include:
"Speed Download 1.9.9, the Mac OS 9 version: If you have a modem, nothing will get you past the 56k limitation of a phone line. The line itself limits flow to 56k, so even if you pull over, the line will make up the difference and go under 56k to even the difference. EXCELLENT for cable modems. DOES EXACTLY what it says. Anywhere from 256kbs to 1000kbs download depending on server. I regularly download 3 MB in 4 or 5 seconds."

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.
These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
