The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 4.8
GetGo Download Manager enables you to download online content in a very fast manner. It is able to download Flash videos from websites like MetaCafe, Vimeo, YouTube, Google Video, etc. but also handles documents and executable files. This free program impresses by its downloading speed.
I know from experience that a lot of applications of this kind are available, but not all of them are able to offer users what they promise: fast and safe downloads from many websites. GetGo Download Manager really surprised me in a very pleasant way with all its features.
Its graphical user-interface resembles the one of a torrent client. It displays the downloading processes under categories like: downloading, pending, downloaded, etc. Also, you are allowed to customize it by hiding panels that you don’t use, as well as by changing its theme.
Two additional features that convinced me to recommend this application are the scheduler, which you can use to plan your downloads, and the URL catcher, a tool that increases the program’s compatibility with various browsers. You should also give this program a try.
