Internet Download Accelerator Portable version 188.8.131.521
This is the portable edition of Internet Download Accelerator (or IDA), a powerful download manager that boasts rich features to ensure a smooth file downloading experience, whether we are talking about small-sized or large-sized items.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can simply drop the program files anywhere on the hard drive, and run the EXE item immediately.
More importantly, the Windows Registry section does not get new entries, and files are not left behind on the hard drive after removing the program.
Upon deployment you are required to specify the Internet connection type and working language. The tool’s interface is clean and intuitive, with all downloads neatly organized by category, such as programs, archives, music and video, along with top downloads and history. Evidently, you can add new categories, delete the existing ones or change their properties (name, icon, save directory, file type filters).
Internet Download Accelerator supports a Clipboard live-monitoring tool concerning URLs with downloadable content, so getting a file is particularly simple. Plus, tasks can be started immediately or postponed. In addition to a single file download, IDA lets you import a URLs list, thus enabling you to create a queue of automatic downloads.
Other features of the app let you schedule tasks, define priorities and the speed limit, get a ZIP archive’s contents to download individual files/folders, add comments to each job, find mirrors, download entire websites, use a search function and FTP explorer, as well as specify the maximum number of downloads to run simultaneously (up to 10), to name but a few.
The program is very impressive when it comes to the downloading speed, managing to surpass the download managers integrated in some popular web browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer). To sum it up, Internet Download Accelerator comes packed with a wide range of useful features for supplying users with a fast and completely customizable downloading experience, that can be effortlessly figured out, thanks to its intuitive layout and well-organized options.
