Best Multithreaded Download Manager

My favorite download manager is IDM. In Linux you cannot run IDM except through Wine or VM.

I prefer to use “axel” which is a multi-threaded downloader.

In ubuntu,

sudo  apt-get  install  axel

Then use it as follows,

axel  -n  <no._of_segments_upto_256>   <download_link>

e.g.

axel  -n  8  http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.32.2.tar.bz2

Note: You can use “-a “  for alternate download-progress bar
