While modern web browsers like Google Chrome offer a basic download manager, they come with shortcomings like slow download speed, lack of resume capacity, limited download queue, and minimal features.
Browser download managers don't utilize your full internet bandwidth, and this often results in slow/failed downloads or restarting downloads from scratch when interrupted. This can be very frustrating, especially when you have large files to download.
This is why we have software extensions like the Internet Download Manager (IDM). The IDM addresses the shortcomings of the browser's built-in download manager. With IDM, you can pause and resume downloads at any time, even after interruptions or reboots.
In this guide, you will learn how to install and use an Internet download manager.
