uGet is a download manager for Linux that uses few resources and works smoothly and effectively. It is available in twenty languages.

What does a download manager even do?

It’s a program that facilitates the download of files over the Internet, especially larger ones, allowing you to pause and resume downloads as you need. Such programs are mostly used when your connection is slow and allow you to automate downloads from one site and search for mirror sites to accelerate them.

What can uGet do?

uGet allows you to download an unlimited number of files simultaneously and also supports anonymous download via HTTP, FTP, HTTPS, BitTorrent and Metalink. In addition, uGet can activate up to 16 automatic connections per download. You can also schedule downloads, and schedule and set periods of time in which you can’t download a file (for example, when you're using the computer). If you are concerned about interruptions, there is a Quiet Mode which adds downloads to a specific category and prevents pop-ups appearing.

Keyboard shortcuts and automation

Carry out uGet tasks quicker with keyboard shortcuts: open download, open folder... If you want, you can choose to turn off your computer after all files have been downloaded, for example, overnight, and delete file history for the oldest downloads.
