From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

wxDownload Fast (also known as wxDFast) is a free/open source download manager. It was created to be multi-platform, so at the moment it builds on Windows (2000, XP), Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X. Besides that, it is a multi-threaded (aka accelerated or segmented) download manager. This means that it can split a file into several pieces and download the pieces simultaneously. Created in C++ using the wxWidgets library, wxDownload Fast can be built with MinGW or MSVC, allowing it to be built with just free/open source tools.
