    Do you mean just for common net downloads? Try gwget. It's the only one I have ever used but don't use one anymore really.

    Try searching the Ubuntu forums for recommendations to.

    Thanks for replying. I am looking for IDM like download manager . I don't know if there is any for that kind of functions. I have tried Wget before. I find firefox down loader better than Wget.

    If you are talking about a manager for downloading from sites like rapidshare, megauplaod, etc... Then jdownloader is good.

    Thanks for replying but for now I am going to stick with built in Firefox downloader. No download manager is close enough to IDM.

    I use "axel" download accelerator.
    Axel tries to accelerate downloads by using multiple connections (possibly to multiple servers) for one download. Because of its size, it might be very useful on bootdisks or other small systems as a wget replacement.

    Maybe not so good for "manager" but realy good for speed.
    axel is a command line, but you can use "zenity" to make simple gui, like this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    url=`zenity --title="Axel GUI" --text="Enter url" --entry`
    user=`zenity --title="Axel GUI" --text="Enter username" --entry`
    pass=`zenity --title="Axel GUI" --text="Enter password" --entry`
    axel --num-connections=8 http://"$user":"$pass"@"$url"
