Tests show that Aget is successfull in realizing its objectives. A file of size 36.347.010 bytes was downloaded in 14 minutes 28 secs via wget; whereas it was downloaded in 3 minutes and 15 seconds via aget.
Aget is an acronym for two Turkish words "Acele Getir". (Eng.: Get it fast!)
If you're downloading a file of size less than 512K, I suggest using small segments, i.e 4-5 however, if you are downloading large files, you can increase the segmentation Aget first sends a HEAD request to retrieve the length of the file, and divides it into equal segments according to the number user has requested. Then for each segment, it connects to the server and gets only the part, which it is to download. Therefore, if you're downloading a small file, it is suggested that you decrease the number of segmentation, likewise, if it's a large file, you're urged to increase the number of threads.
