This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
However, if you would like an alternative, aria2 is very nice. Handles HTTP/S, FTP, Metalinks, BitTorrent, segmented downloads, preallocation, download resuming, reading cookies from Firefox/Chrome, can be daemonized and controlled via JSON-RPC/XML-RPC.
A GUI frontend is available in uGet.

Native to Windows (comes preinstalled, and depends on "bits" Windows service):
Can do what wget does, and prolly more (you can control an ongoing job via api like commands - for example you can get status speed and cancel if it is too slow)
Example usage from my own experience (you can do parallel downloads in the same .bat, or do sequencial downloads in the same job):
