Download Studio can help you manage and accelerate Internet downloads. It is characterized by the multiplicity of contents it can support, which includes single web pages, complete web sites, pictures, Flash objects, videos, and audios. Similarly, it can also download RSS feeds and podcasts and save the results of search engine queries.

Since there are so many types of tasks you can do with this tool, it is logical that first-time users feel somewhat overwhelmed. So, if you are not willing to devote some time to learning how to use the tool probably because your download tasks are not so complex, you had better look for an easier application. Good news is that there is a quick start panel from where you can configure tasks and that there are wizards to help you find the way.

As many other downloaders, this one supports pausing and resuming as well as using multiple threads to reduce the necessary time. Likewise, it is possible to schedule downloads to start automatically at the most convenient time.

The downloader integrates with most popular web browsers, so it can identify downloadable contents while you are browsing. It also has other convenient utilities to manage contents that are difficult to download otherwise. In this regard, there is one to capture streaming video directly and another to find URLs hidden in the page code.

All in all, Download Studio is the most versatile of all the similar tools I have tested. It can help you do practically any kind of download task you can think of. In addition to that, it can accelerate downloads quite noticeably.

Wayne Great download manager. I have tried a few of these and this is the best so far. It actually looks nice, is easy to use, but most importantly it gets the files I want fast and organizes them so I can get them when I want. Great for YouTube, just would like them to add a converter in so I can download flash and output to my ipod in one step.
