MultiGet – a multithread download manager for Ubuntu Linux desktop

It’s extremely frustrating to have your download progress interrupted, especially when you are downloading several (relatively large) files over the Internet. Fortunately, there’s MultiGet, a download manager that supports multi-connection and parallel downloads.

MultiGet is easy to user, and from my observation, it’s interface closely resemble Flashget download manager from Microsoft Windows platform. The differences is, that MultiGet runs natively on Linux, and it supports multiple operating system too.

MultiGet has a simple, friendly user interface that is easy to use. Best of all, it supports batch task downloading.
