Does someone knows a good multithread downloads manager for linux? I am using Lucid Lynx, I use to use multiget but it hasn't been updated since 2007.

I'd like it to support login for sites like rapidshare, something like FlashGet in win.

By multithread I dont only mean multiple downloads but like FlashGet "Jets" feature to download files faster.

jDownloader does the thing.

Have you tried the Firefox plugin DownThemAll? Also, Opera has similar functionality built-in, with very powerful URL grepping from the Links page.

For segmented download use axel. Of course it will not work for rapidshare-like services (sessions per IP).

Aria2c is pretty good. Just installed on Fedora 16 and downloading files with no issues.

WebDownloade for X seems to do the work.

A general tool is aria2, but it will not support things like rapidshare, only normal downloads. For sites with hoops for you to jump through, you will need a specialized tool. Also, segmented downloads may not work anyway because they typically restrict you to one active download session per ip address -- you'd need a farm of machines to bypass that.

JDownloader from jdownloader.org It's indicated for sites like rapidshare.com, especially if you have a premium account (you will be automatically be logged in and download at full speed)
