FlashGet Review

Sven Sorensen

Powerful download manager


A review of FlashGet by

FlashGet is by far one of the most popular Internet download managers currently available. It used to include advertising, but has since toned that down a little bit to now be classified as freeware.

One of the major selling points of FlashGet is its optimized usage of system resources. By keeping its memory footprint at a low level, FlashGet is able to operate with speed. It usually sits idly in the background and even when downloading, the PC does not seem to slow down. JDownloader is also a well-known Internet download manager and they include FlashGet installing as an option for their users.

FlashGet can download from many sources and with quite a few protocols. At the moment, it supports your typical HTTP and FTP downloads from web- and ftp sites but also acts as a Bit Torrent and ed2k client, able to handle eMule links.

Organization was kept in mind while designing FlashGet and it shows because users are able to categorize their downloads endlessly. When downloads are complete, you will be able to access them from the specified folder responsible for the category that you have defined. This also makes it easier to find and access files, finding them by category classification.

One way this download manager is able to get such fast HTTP/FTP speeds is its use of MHT (Multi-Server Hyperthreading Transportation). Essentially, this means that FlashGet is able to access the file you're looking for from multiple sources it knows about.

Overall, the program is pretty useful and far more robust and less-prone to crashes than a lot of other download managers.

FlashGet can increase the speed of downloads, download multiple file parts at once and pause and resume downloads.


FlashGet is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from download managers without restrictions. FlashGet 3.7 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
