GetRight – a download manager that simply improves and optimizes the files you download from the Internet. It features download resuming, accelerating, scheduling and more.

It doesn’t matter how fast your connection is, if you download big popular files like game demos, Linux installs, or videos, you can still have problems with disconnections or slow servers. GetRight’s resuming and acceleration will make your downloads painless and easy–and as fast as possible.

Features:
– GetRight can download not only from web and ftp servers, but also BitTorrent™ downloads.
– It integrates with your web browser, so using GetRight is as easy as clicking. You don’t have to do anything special for it to do your downloads. Works with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, AOL, and MSN.
– Huge files are no problem–download DVD-sized files (many Gigabytes).
– Build a big list of everything to download, and set the order for downloading to just what you want so the important files come first.
– Set it to turn off the computer when it is done getting the files so you can just leave it alone to do the work.
– GetRight’s History will let you easily find files you’ve downloaded.
– You can schedule a time when GetRight should start downloading to get your files…so it can do all the work in the middle of the night while you sleep.
– GetRight includes several ways to scan a website to quickly grab batches of files.
– If you listen to Podcasts, GetRight can automatically download them for you, even adding the files into a playlist in iTunes or Windows Media Player.
– If you need to get the same files every day (like web log files) GetRight’s Daily Downloads let you schedule files to be downloaded every day.
– Its options let you make GetRight work just how you want. Make categories to organize your downloads, or just put them all in one spot. Tweak how it operates for many features, or just download without changing a thing. The choices are all yours.

The project developer is Michael Burford.
The latest version of GetRight 6.5 was released in 2011.

LFTP – a file transfer program supporting a number of network protocols (ftp, http, sftp, fish, torrent). Like BASH, it has job control and uses the readline library for input. It has bookmarks, a built-in mirror command, and can transfer several files in parallel. It was designed with reliability in mind.

Every operation in lftp is reliable, that is any non-fatal error is handled and the operation is retried automatically. So if downloading breaks, it will be restarted from the point automatically. Even if ftp server does not support REST command, lftp will try to retrieve the file from the very beginning until the file is transferred completely. This is useful for dynamic-ip machines which change their IP addresses quite often, and for sites with very bad internet connectivity.

lftp has builtin mirror which can download or update a whole directory tree. There is also reverse mirror (mirror -R) which uploads or updates a directory tree on server.

There is command `at’ to launch a job at specified time in current context, command `queue’ to queue commands for sequential execution for current server, and much more.

LFTP supports IPv6 for both FTP and HTTP protocols, and also for BitTorrent. For FTP protocol it uses method described in RFC2428.
Other low level stuff supported: ftp proxy, http proxy, ftp over http, opie/skey, fxp transfers, socks.

LFTP supports secure versions of the protocols FTP and HTTP: FTPS (explicit and implicit) and HTTPS. LFTP needs to be linked with an SSL library to support them. GNU TLS and OpenSSL are both supported as SSL backend.
