Mozilla2:Improved Download Manager

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A download manager with resume ability even after Mozilla restart would be fine (already supported in Opera).

  • Download resuming
  • Download Acceleration just like Down Them All, Or may be incorporate Dta in m2
  • Easy way to automaticly use MD5 to check download integrity (maybe by passing the String to the download window (possibily under an advanced button or opened then feature is enabled in the options). No string would mean don't verify)

Silent download feature, for those on slow modems, and downloading large files, slowly enough to not notice a slow down in our connection.
