This is a new version of NetAnts.  The installation is straightforward and simple.

This one of those new breed of programs that is adware.  You know the kind that doesn't cost anything, but ad banners are flashing away at you.  Well that is alright by me, I can take it..

Here is what this program does.  It makes multiple download connections to the same download so that it downloads much faster than it normally would.  In fact in my experience almost at all times it maxes out my modem at 56k, or close to it.

Now in this new improved version, the interface looks nicer, and it sorta keeps track of your downloads.  It lets you put comments on your downloaded files, plus it keep track of when you downloaded.

The Help file is still in Chinese (at least I think it is) so it is useless, unless of course you read Chinese.  However the good news is that it is intuitive that you don't need it.

There are a couple of other helpful things it does,  when you done downloading it will shut down your Internet connection and your computer.  These are optional.

All in all this is my download program of choice, I use it for everything.  Oops forgot to mention that it can be integrated with your browser.
