i have been searching download managers these days .. since i'll
get BSNL 2nd bfone within few days. i am looking for faster
download managers that also have resume feauture. googling showed
me axel, prozilla, ..
wget (commandline) is my choice any day.
Wget is so incredibly good that it is considered somewhat blasphemous

for Unix that you'd find are nothing more than pretty wget frontends.
Anything that's not a wget frontend is likely to be far inferior.

(From a Linux Lunacy cruise interview. After the presumptuous disparagement
of QC, Linus goes on to confuse it with DNA computing.)
