Internet Download Manager (IDM) is a tool to increase download speeds by up to 5 times, resume, and schedule downloads. Comprehensive error recovery and resume capability will restart broken or interrupted downloads due to lost connections, network problems, computer shutdowns, or unexpected power outages. The simple graphic user interface makes IDM user-friendly and easy to use.

Internet Download Manager, commonly referred to as IDM, is a powerful and feature-rich software application designed to enhance and streamline your downloading experience. Developed by Tonec Inc., IDM is widely recognized as one of the best download managers available in the market. It offers a wide range of features and tools to optimize your download speed, manage your downloads efficiently, and help you organize your downloaded files.

The tool has a smart download logic accelerator that features intelligent dynamic file segmentation and safe multipart downloading technology to accelerate your downloads. Unlike other download managers and accelerators, the app segments downloaded files dynamically during the download process and reuses available connections without additional connect and login stages to achieve the best acceleration performance. Enjoy!

It supports proxy servers, FTP and HTTP protocols, firewalls, redirects, cookies, authorization, MP3 audio, and MPEG video content processing. It integrates seamlessly into Chrome, Brave, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Maxthon Cloud Browser, and all other popular browsers to automatically handle your downloads. You can also drag and drop files, or use the software from the command line. The program can dial your modem at the set time, download the files you want, and then hang up or even shut down your computer when it's done.

Version IDM Downloader 6.38 adds Windows 10 and the latest Windows 11 compatibility, and adds IDM download panel for web-players. It also features complete Windows 8.1 (Windows 8, Windows 7, and Vista) support, a page grabber, a redeveloped scheduler, and MMS protocol support.
