Be them media or program executable files, EagleGet can manage all your downloads in an attractive and intuitive environment for free. Besides, it will increase your download speeds, and will monitor selected pages and file types for automatic downloading of those videos or audio files that you do not want to miss. It can integrate seamlessly with your favorite Internet browser for an even easier way to download files from the Web.

You can add any number of files of any type to the download window, and manage all your downloads from there. You can also use the Media Grabber to download any video from any online sharing site, just by pasting its URL. You can manage all your downloads as you wish – sort them in any way, queue them for a late start at the date and time of your choice, stop and resume them, etc. You can monitor specific file types, so that you don’t miss any of the files (from those specific types) coming your way while browsing the Web. The program can monitor media files (FLV, MP4, MP3, AVI, MOV, MPG, etc.), archive files (ZIP, RAR, 7Z, TAR, etc.), EXE and MSI executable files, documents (TXT, PDF, HTML, DOC, and many more), and any other types of files that you decide and that are not included in these other categories.

EagleGet integrates fully and seamlessly with your Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox browser so that you can download the files you were looking for without opening the program first. Its smart use of multi-threaded technologies allows it to maximize all your system’s downloading capabilities, and increase the normal download speed up to six times. You will see the overall download speed at all times in a small window on your desktop. Here you will also check if the program is making use of all your “downloading power” or just part of it. And also from here, you can right-click to open the preferences or configuration window.

EagleGet is fully configurable in terms of connectivity, monitoring, notifications, scheduling, etc. You can determine a maximum download speed (if you don’t want other online services to suffer from lack of bandwidth), a maximum number of simultaneous downloads, and even tell the program to resume any interrupted download on startup. Here you can also set your proxy (if needed) and enable or disable clipboard and browser monitoring, decide which file types will be downloaded automatically and what sites should not be monitored by the program. When it comes to automatic download of media files, Video Sniffer can “sniff” and grab your favorite MP3, SWF, MPG, FLV, WAV, MP4, or MKV files (to name but a few) from selected hosting sites automatically. Finally, I would like to note that this free and nice-to-look-at tool is not only an excellent download manager, but also a media converter – it can download and transform any HD online video into a smaller and more portable file, extract their audio stream, and convert it into your favorite audio format.

There are many reasons to have a good download manager installed in your system. EagleGet has all those reasons and, besides, it is free, easy to use, fully configurable, and comes with some extra tools that will make other media-related programs on your desktop redundant.
