Is there such a thing or can any other browsers have this feature?
Well addition to answer by HackToHell, Have a download.sh script like below, which will retry downloading each and everytime network breaks, from where it was left previously.
#!/bin/bash link=$1 if [ "$link" == "" ]; then echo "Provide valid download link"; exit -1; fi while(true) do wget -c $link retval="$?" if [ $retval -eq 0 ]; then break; fi done
And call it link
If you want your download to continue after you exit from shell then
$nohup ./download.sh DOWNLOAD_LINK > nohup.out & disown
I'm not sure about Chrome, but Firefox's Download StatusBar let's you pause and resume downloads with a single click. Once the download starts, it'll show in the status bar on the bottom of the screen, then if your connection gets interrupted, just click it twice (but not double click!). It'll attempt to resume automatically.
You can also click just once on it to pause.
EDIT: pausing and resuming a download in chrome should have the same effect.
For Chrome users, I've found this to be one of the most up-to-date (at the time of writing) ways to solve resume failed downloads.
