A powerful, complex and totally free download manager for Linux operating systems

editor's review






flareGet is a freeware product that provides users with a complex, full featured, multi-threaded, multi-segment and cross-platform download manager and accelerator that can easily replace the default download manager of popular web browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera or Internet Explorer.

Features at a glance

Key features include enhanced browser integration through add-ons, dynamic file segmentation algorithm for amazingly fast downloads, batch download, support for pausing and resuming unfinished downloads, on completion actions, YouTube video grabber, scheduler, proxy support, as well as intelligent file management.

Modern and uniform graphical user interface

Its GUI (Graphical User Interface) is written with the modern Qt toolkit and will instruct users to restart their web browsers when running it for the first time, while keeping in mind that holding the F or Insert keys for a few seconds will prevent flareGet from taking over the download.

Furthermore, in order to use flareGet as the default download manager for the Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera web browsers, you'll first need to install the FlareGet Integration add-on by pressing the respective button on the "Browser Integration Setup' dialog.

A universal download manager

The application is officially supported on Microsoft Windows (Windows XP/Vista/7/8), as well as some of the most popular Linux distributions, including Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Fedora, openSUSE, Mandriva, Chakra, and Linux Mint.

However, it might probably work in any other RPM, DEB or Pacman based GNU/Linux systems, as long as all requirements are met. At the moment, it has been tested on both 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set architectures.

Bottom line

Summing up, flareGet is a fast, actively developed, multi-platform and advanced download manager utility that will fetch any type of file from the Internet at the highest speed possible. A professional version with extra features is avaialble for purchase on the project's homepage.
