Why use a download manager ?
Resuming broken downloads
if you don’t use a download manager, if the internet connection is lost in the middle of a download, you have to again start downloading from the beginning. This is waste of time and bandwidth. If you are using a download manager, then you can resume from the point where the download was interrupted.
Download faster using multiple connection
Without a download manager, only one connection is established while downloading a file. This way your actual available internet speed may not be fully ultilised. But when using a download manager, each file is split into multiple parts and each part is downloaded simultaneosly. This spllitting and downloading is done internally by download manager and when the download is complete it will be one single file.
Keep track of your downloads and organise them
Most download manager keeps a history of the downloads and also allows to categorize them.
