Downloaders for Linux

The internet is the heaven for most users.. and the main reason is information is abundant and free. Thus, downloading is an important activity of Netizens.

Here I present some of the best Downloaders available for Linux based OS-es.

1. Gwget
2. KGet

Both the above softwares use 'wget' as it's backend. It is great for simple downloads. Will not accelerate downloads.

3. axel

Axel is a very good download accelerator. It supports multiple connections and has a KDE interface also. The main axel binary is command line and does great work on it's own.

This is a fantastic software that has a GUI that is very easy to use. Again being multi-threaded, it will accelerate your downloads.
