As I said earlier it is only a basic download manager.  In the settings 
dialogue you can choose a very large number of simultaneous 
downloads and up to 16 simultaneous threads, but the documentation 
warns that around 3 - 5 threads is probably advisable and pushing the 
number of downloads too high may even slow down performance.  I 
find it quite adequate, but your needs may be different from mine.  I 
think the safest thing would be to give it a try rather than rely on other 
people's opinions.     It is very easy to install and easily configured via 
the Settings item in the file menu. 
If it would help, I could send you the Help files "off list".
