HTTP Downloader

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Very nice. I especially liked the animated image of the downloader at work.

Also kind of interested in the program that disables the monitor on the author's website... will try to come back to that.

Re: HTTP Downloader 1.0.0.9

HTTP Downloader at version 1.0.0.9, changes:
Version: 1.0.0.9
Released: 2018-10-26

Added POST data field to advanced options in Add URL(s) window.
Added option to download drag and drop URL(s) immediately.
Added the ability to restart downloads.
Added the ability to remove and delete downloads at the same time.
Added translation support.
Added Spanish string translations (thanks to c-sanchez).
Added Search window to search filenames and URLs.
URL drop window can toggle Always On Top from its context menu or by middle clicking window.
Improved support for browser extensions.
Dynamically loaded SetFileInformationByHandle to hopefully get Windows XP working.
This is an immense release which brings huge enhancements. Now browser integration is perfect (there are new releases of Chromium and Firefox extensions) since HTTP Downloader can intercept downloads from browsers. Downloads can be started automatically without confirmation. I have tested only the Chromium extension and it worked perfectly. The program should work under Windows XP (see this thread and especially this post, confirmation that HTTP Downloader works on Windows XP would be welcome. Spanish language users have a look at this thread- Spanish language file can be found here. Since the program has changed a lot I took new screen-shots.

Screens:

Within 3 releases in a month time HTTP Downloader has improved incredibly, I would like to thank once again the developer- Eric Kutcher for his incredible work.

Downloaded the program, installed the FF extension, set: override the browser's download manager and bumped into a problem straight away.

HTTP Downloader can't download videos form:

FF download manager can.

@Toxteth O'Grady

I have never said that HTTP Downloader can download video. Before downloading and using the program it you might have read the description on program website if the one in the the database is not enough clear for you.

This is the last time I answer irrelevant posts:

HTTP Downloader CANNOT download video!

If it could I would have mentioned that explicitly.

Hi,

I quickly tested HTTP Downloader versions 1.0.0.9 and 1.0.1.0, and can confirm that both versions work in XP. Lot's of improvements with these latest versions as you have outlined, including the addition of a drop window and portable mode using a file, which are very useful. HTTP Downloader is extremely fast and lightweight, with a small footprint using very little resources. It's probably the fastest launching downloader I've seen yet, pretty much instantaneous on my system.

Good work with the developer in getting these improvements implemented.

Thank you for testing HTTP Downloader and for confirming that it runs under Windows XP. The developer has done amazing work. I am glad that Windows XP users can take advantage of this slim, light and fast download manager.

All thumbs up from me as well!
Great little downloader - and the suggestions here were almost instantly realized. Reliable and handy - I tested it with some big files (5,5 and 7,7 GB), pausing the downloads 3 times and shutting down, then resuming and the download went well :D
