An Efficient And Fast File Downloader

Most computers will allow you to download things from the Internet but there are times when you are unable to access the files you nees and there are times when your computer is simply unable to download something for one reason (internal or otherwise) or another. When this sort of thing happens people turn to file downloaders such as File Download ActiveX.

Vastly Increases Your Download Speeds

File Download ActiveX has multiple thread download functions that allow for far faster downloads than your browser is capable of. It is able to split a download into several sections and then download those several sections at the same time. It vastly increases the amount you are able to download from one seed and it does it without you having to install a torrent program. This file downloader is small and lightweight whereas other downloaders and torrent programs are heavy and require lots of installation.

Conclusion - A Very Good Downloader

You should seriously consider using File Download ActiveX if you have to download from obscure locations if you are having trouble finding download options via mainstream tools and if you want a downloader that is light and very efficient. You could do far worse than this tool just be sure to scan the installation files when you download it to be sure you have a legitimate version.
