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.

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.

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

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