At first, I kind of felt that way about it too. But then I realized that perhaps it's serves as a reservation for HDD space. Once reserved, no other program may write that the reserved space except FlashGet. So all FlashGet has to do is to append to that reserved HDD allocation until the file is complete. If you think about it, It's kind of like a fragment minimizer in a way.
IIRC, I think there is a way for GetRight to do it too, I think it's under File and Process web page or something. I remember Mo Threat mentioning this on the old SX ezboard.Quote: from Shinshiro on 1:09 pm on Aug. 29, 2001
so far flashget is the only 1 that comes close to matching Getright, but the only times ive ever preferred it is when there are many many downloads on 1 webpage (cuz then you can just say download all links on page, thats rather handy, with getright you got to do it manually)
I use NS still just because I can't stand MS. But if you haven't tried NS 6.1 it's worth a look. It's FAR more stable over 6.0 and 6.01 and just as fast as IE 5.x as far as I can tell. Still has a few little tweaks in its mail program, but other than that it's slowly replacing Communicator over here.Quote: from Mo Threat on 2:28 pm on Aug. 29, 2001
BTW, I totally agree about Nutscrape's crap. It just plain blows. Much like all their other stuff [does a-n-y-o-n-e use that browser anymore? If so, why? It can't hold a candle to IE 5.xx and up.
