What's new?
  • "drop box" now works fine on older OS's too, and not only on Win7
  • updates can now be checked from inside the program
  • browser context menu code has been remade and now works
  • few bugs on the menus were corrected
  • some minor issues re-done

I meant the download link, not the program itself.

It works perfectly, though I did not test it thoroughly.
I like the "good old look and feel" from the Win98, Win2K era, but the usability ... could be better.

@juverax: have you tested it? It works alright from here.

The download link points to https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=715 not to the application.

Good App...
I have unsuccessfuly tried to download a large ISO file using Google Chrome or Firefox. Download was uncomplete.
Download was OK with WEBDownloader

This is an excellant program for downloading large files that take a long time to complete.
Chromium Browsers seem to have a bad habit in my experience of getting halfway thru a large download and just stopping,
this is the perfect remedy.

i think it has to be the worst! The first link to a download i tried and it failed.
It can be tricky trying to drag links into the window as well, perhaps dragging them to the system tray icon would be better?

I personally believe there's no one to give competition to Portable wackGet in this category.
Surely not this one.Although it is 'good'.
