Internet Download Manager 6 review

All modern web browsers come with download capabilities, and while those are getting the job done, they usually fail when it comes to management and advanced features. Download managers like Internet Download Manager 6 add a rich feature set to the system which not only gives you better control over all downloads, but often also improves the speed in which files are downloaded to your computer system. How that's done? For instance by segmenting downloads and using multiple connections to decrease the time it takes to complete it.

The installation of Internet Download Manager is straightforward. An option to select the browsers you want the program to integrate with would have been nice, but other than that, there is no reason for complaints. IDM integrates itself automatically into supported web browsers, the list includes Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Opera, by hijacking the browser's own download tool. The process is fully automated and you do not have to do anything different to take advantage of the program.

Downloads that you initiate are simply handled automatically by the download manager and not the browser's download tool. It displays information about the download, will group the download automatically, and lets you add a description if you want.

Sometimes, the downloads may not get picked up correctly. When that is the cause you have other options to still work with Internet Download Manager. You can right-click the download and select the download with IDM option from the context menu, enable clipboard monitoring in the application and copy download links to the clipboard, drag and drop download links from the browser into the program window, or paste a download address directly into the program using the Tasks > Add new download option.

A files' type determines whether it will immediately be downloaded by IDM or if downloads are not started automatically. You can modify white and blacklisted file types in the program configuration. Here you also find an option to block automatic downloads from select Internet addresses.

While you may usually want your downloads to complete as soon as possible, you sometimes may need bandwidth for other tasks while downloading. If you are watching an HD video for instance that is streamed to your system, you may want to limit the download bandwidth. IDM enables you to limit the download speed during downloads or as a general setting in the program options.

Downloads can be added to a queue if you do not want the files to be downloaded directly. This can be a useful way of collecting downloads to run them when the computer is idle or when you are not sitting in front of it. The queue can then be processed using the built-in scheduler or manually at any time.

Downloads are automatically sorted into categories like compressed, documents or programs. You can add, edit and remove categories which help you keep an overview over all of your downloads. Categories, queues, and unfinished downloads are displayed on the left in the sidebar that you can navigate to filter files here.

The configuration options let you customize the download manager further. You can for instance disable integration in select browsers or add other browsers, portable versions for instance, to the list of browser's that are monitored. There are also options to configure keyboard shortcuts to bypass or force downloading with IDM, customize the browser context menu entries, change the default maximum number of connections, or add site logins and proxy information if needed.

One interesting feature of IDM is that it supports multiple download queues that you can manage individually and create schedules for.

If you need to download a lot of files from a single site, you may want to use the built-in Grabber module which lets you do that. It supports authorization if needed and enables you to download a lot of pictures, audio files or any other type of file from the selected address. You can select one of the available templates that the program ships with, or configure your own custom template instead.While optimized for file downloading, it can actually also be used to download a complete website to your local system.

site grabber

All downloads remain listed in the program until you decide to delete them. If you never do that, you get a complete download history of your downloads which may be helpful if you need to download a file again but can't remember where you downloaded it from.


Internet Download Manager promises faster download speeds, lets see if that is the really the case. A test download of the latest Linux Mint version, a 960 Megabyte download, completed in 2 minutes 44 seconds and about 3 additional seconds to combine the parts that were downloaded. This maxed out the download bandwidth of the Internet connection. The same download using Google Chrome's internal download manager took 3 minutes and 4 seconds to complete.

IDM speeds up your downloads. I suppose it can even be faster if the service limits the available bandwidth per connection that you make.


Internet Download Manager speeds up your downloads, if you want, and enables you to keep taps on all downloads on the system it is running on. Integration with web browsers is solid for the most part, Firefox Nightly users will however notice that it is not compatible with their browser. While it is still possible to use the program, for instance by enabling clipboard monitoring, direct support would have been nicer.

The program improves the download speed, by how much, depends on a number of factors including the server you are downloading from and the PC's Internet connection and load.

  31. EuroScept1C December 6, 2012 at 12:46 pm #

    I'll be honest... Many years ago, when I was ~15 years old, I was using this great downloader, but cracked from warez sites. Long time ago, I stopped installing "dirty", unsafe and non-untouched software and since, I miss this software. Currently I'm downloading with the default Firefox downloader, but never I liked it particularly.

    Anyway, a free licence would be truly great.

    I would like to give this a try to see if it really improves my system. As of now, I haven't noticed any big problem with downloads - perhaps I don't download enough to notice.

  49. farmer December 6, 2012 at 1:28 pm #

    I soon ends one-year license updates so be sure to have another roczek.A why he makes the best download manager? Many managers I used to download files from the Internet, but the Internet Download Manager broke them all. IDM supports proxy servers, ftp and http which makes it unbeatable. Added to this is the integration of most browsers, such as:
    -Internet Explorer
    Chrome and other popular browsers.
    The program has several categories to which the downloaded files are saved: compressed, music, documents, programs, movies, unfinished. I just do not use these categories and have them deleted, and the files in the folder, write down the general, pointing out that in the options settings. Due to the longer segment files are shared so that retrieval is faster. With IDM we can download flash videos from such sites like YouTube, MySpaceTV, and Google Video. The program has an option to resume downloads, which works when we suddenly stop downloading in a sudden lack of interne

  50. rask0 December 6, 2012 at 1:38 pm #

    I use the trial version of IDM and it's a nice piece of software with extremeley fast download speeds. Would love the have the full version.

  51. gioni December 6, 2012 at 1:44 pm #

    This is the best Download Manager, thanks for the opportunity.

  52. Luis G. Uribe C. December 6, 2012 at 1:46 pm #

    Hi, I begun using GetRight (late 19XXs). It was very useful being able to download the SAME file from DIFFERENT servers at once. Then, I loose contact and became MassDownload user (Windows), and continue to use it: *3.9 old* version. MassDownload uses multiple threads, but only 1 source server...

    To download full sites and explore them offline, I use OfflineExplorer Pro, 5.9. It is expensive, but useful. I did not upgrade it anymore...

    wget never was an option for me (Windows Vista, Cygwin console [no GUI]...)

    It would be great to use "Internet Download Manager" under Chrome, after seen this wonderful review you just wrote: Only one soft, small, almost inane installation complaint !

    Thanks a lot for letting us to share your daily, wise reviews.

    Luis G. Uribe C.

  53. haider December 6, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

  55. Boyfriend December 6, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    Thanks Martin Brinkmann for review and give away. Please count me in. I am currently using no download manager and am in too much trouble due to inconsistent behaviours of internet/downloads. I have previously used IDM trial and was too happy with its performance. I don't like to use cracked version and would love to have it legally. I am hopping for the best.


  56. Mannar Mannan December 6, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    I badly need idm since am a download junkie. I think it is the no.1 download manager available as of now. Also the team constantly upgrade their software to make it compatible with all the browsers. I love it :)

  57. Greg December 6, 2012 at 2:08 pm #

    Currently I just use the browser's build in download manager. Tried one a while ago, a long while and tbh I'm not sure why I stopped using it - it was that long ago. Would be nice to win a license and start using a DL manager again.

    thanks for the review.

  58. Me December 6, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    its one of the best.

  59. Nikhil Tom December 6, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    Thanks for this giveaway,
    Currently I'm using DAP (Download Accelerator Plus) and IDM free,
    Before my introduction to third party download managers I used browser integrated ones,
    After losing my downloads many times I googled for the solution and found download managers,
    Used Jdownloader (still best for downloading from sites like rapidshare), Orbit and flashget,
    I found DAP and IDM reliable

  60. faircot December 6, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    Using the default browser download settings (whether it's IE, FF or Opera) can be frustrating and sometimes difficult to monitor.

    IDM is an excellent, reliable solution for downloading, storing and find finding these downloads. Recommended.

  61. zul December 6, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    currently i am using jdownloader and browser download. it will be nice to have a dedicated download manager that can speed up my download.

  62. Aravind PS December 6, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

  63. utuser December 6, 2012 at 2:36 pm #

    I absolutely love internet download manager! Have searched high and low for an alternative after my trial period ran out but no other software provides such seamless Chrome integration, acceleration, reliability, flexibility and versatility. Hope to win!!

  64. Jaswinder Singh December 6, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    I used to use getright back in the day but lost my license key a long time ago. I did try a trial for IDM when it was around version 3 and it seemed pretty nice. Currently I just download with the browser and occasionally use jdownloader when needing to download multiple files from file hosting sites. I would love to win a copy of this new version of IDM and give it a go. I like the idea of it helping to auto-categorize files downloaded.

    Oh great Giveaway, I tried the trial and I love it, there are files that sometimes I want to download but the websites blocked to me, I think this tool is great for me.
    Thanks for the chance

  158. acr December 6, 2012 at 8:29 pm #

    I've always wanted IDM as it seems the best download manager available. It's just been a little out of my budget though. For downloading videos I use a script with Chrome that has always worked well. It adds a download button to Youtube videos that looks like it's integrated with the site perfectly.

    This needs updated periodically as Youtube changes things to prevent downloads every once in a while.

  159. Jani Kinnunen December 6, 2012 at 8:36 pm #

    I would greatly appreciate the Internet Download Manager license. Currently, I'm using Free Download Manager for downloading files that are larger than 700 MB in size.

  160. Kite Pan December 6, 2012 at 8:42 pm #

    Actually I don't use download managers, but I really like to win a license for the best of downloaders.

  173. chad tunis December 6, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    One of the best download manager, it can show the correct downloading speed and very fast, it will predownload some contents and thats a good feature which most of them not aware of it, also it will discard if we cancel the download.

  175. Angel V December 6, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

    I have bought Internet Download Accelerator, which was for the same price as IDM, and I regret not buying IDM all the time.

  178. BlogWurm December 6, 2012 at 11:06 pm #

    Hello Martin,

    currently I only use the download manager of Firefox,
    but it would be nice to win because IDM rocks.

    IDM is in its sector stand of the art,
    so I will take in this contest part.

    I especially like its video downloading feature with only one click,
    cause download- and watching videos offline later is always a clever trick.

    Best Regards and a have a nice 6th december.
    Hope "Santa Claus" brought you some nice gifts, you will remember.


  179. Kuk Wan December 6, 2012 at 11:43 pm #

    It is wonderful program I've ever seen. So much features, but it doesn't donwload video from some sites. I don't know why. Nevertheless I still want a license for my friend. So count me in pls...

  180. James December 6, 2012 at 11:44 pm #

    Hope to win a license of IDM. I am currently using IDM and wanted to extend using it. This is the best download manager out there. Thanks for this amzing giveaway. I am really impressed with the functionality of IDM. Its really fast.

  181. Threshold December 6, 2012 at 11:55 pm #

    At present I use, depending on the downloads:
    -Firefox own download manager for single, small files
    -Firefox extension dTA
    -JDownloader which works great as an Youtube ripper better than Firefox DownloadHelper imo.


  182. Darek December 7, 2012 at 12:08 am #

    This is the best download manager. I hope to win. Thanks for a contest.

  183. ebta December 7, 2012 at 12:15 am #

    I use orbit downloader, sometimes using default chrome downloader

  184. andhla December 7, 2012 at 12:16 am #

    Currently I use free download manager. IDM is the best.

  185. Paf Borg December 7, 2012 at 12:32 am #

    hey Martin, thanks again for another great giveaway. I dont use any special download manager. Usually I use the default downloader for the browser I'm using, and currently I use DownThemAll! for Firefox. I would appreciate if you could count me in. All the best.

  186. Jan Kron December 7, 2012 at 12:42 am #

    This program is the first league. I had it once.

  187. Miguel December 7, 2012 at 1:04 am #

    Currently, I don’t use any special software to handle general internet downloads.

    I use Firefox built-in download manager to download all files. This is usually ok for everyday downloads (some PDF file, some update of a program...), but sometimes, if files are large enough (like the ISO download of the Windows 7 official DVDs, a few months ago...), or if there are too many files to get at once (like the 2nd tuesday updates of Microsoft...), it becomes a problem to get those downloads finished without help from the user, like taking care of pausing the download if you have to disconnect from the internet (otherwise the download may appear to fail and sometimes Firefox may start it over again!), or making sure the file was downloaded completly (some servers just appear to have finished the download, but you only got a part of the file!), or reenabling the download if it failed for some temporary network error.

    I did try the Firefox extension "DownThemAll", but I did not keep it... I can’t remember what was the downside that caused me to uninstall it.

    Anyway, just by reading your review, "Internet Download Manager" appears to have a lot of features that will not only help you to download your files a bit faster (that's always welcome, of course), but will do the downloads *without you having to take care of them* (queues, schedules...). I think that reasons make it a valuable software.

    And said that, I would like to win one of the licenses :)

    Thanks a lot to Martin from GHacks for the Chirstmas giveaways every year, and Merry Christmas everyone :)

  188. Matt December 7, 2012 at 1:09 am #

    I used to use GetRight on my PC but I like this alternative.

    I use Folx on my Mac and it works quite well.

  189. mohsen December 7, 2012 at 1:44 am #

    thanks, for this great contest,
    IDM is definitely among the best download managers, however it cheats when showing download speed,interface doesn't have diagram, doesn't even shows total download speed and also has some bugs like loosing download link! or or corrupted files in FTP protocol but yet remains on top. count me in too.

  190. galaxy88888 December 7, 2012 at 1:59 am #

    i use IDM a lot..... it really works....

  191. Yappe December 7, 2012 at 2:01 am #

  192. Sandeep Yadav December 7, 2012 at 2:07 am #

    I am using Internet Download Manager from a long time and is satisfied with it. It is the best solution to download files from internet and it gives better speed as compared with browser default downloader.

  193. Conan December 7, 2012 at 2:26 am #

    I'm in this giveaway, I used to use Free Download Manager and it worked out well for me, but stopped using it six months ago. I heard that IDM improved download speed and I would like to have a jump at that. :)

    Download managers are a very useful addition to all Browsers.
    Highly configurable (download folder placement, Virus scan etc) and in most cases increases in download speeds are a bonus.
    I would like to give Internet Download Manager a test drive to see how it compares to my current DLM Free Download Manager.

  207. hamilton December 7, 2012 at 7:26 am #

    IDM is one of the best Download Manager software.

  226. Peter December 7, 2012 at 11:02 am #

    For some reason in my 20 years of browsing the web and downloading quite some content, I've never come to *really* trying out a download manager. I remember I installed some, but after some days I found myself not using them any longer, so I uninstalled them again. A good download manager should pick up my downloads automatically. That's why I would like to try out Download manager and see if it's really the one to have.
    Currently, I'm using nothing more than the 'Download Statusbar" add-on for FireFox. And from time to time, jDownloader.

    Kind regards and keep up the good work here @ ghacks.

    there's a typo in the article: "When that is the cause you have other options..." should read "When that is the cAse you have other options..."

    Well, actually i used to utilise a variety of download tools - from Flashget to Free Download Manager to Download Accelerator Plus to Downthemall! - but after seeing IDM's performance, I'm sold and convinced this is the BEST download manager software to date - nothing is as FAST, USER-FRIENDLY and FUNCTIONAL as Internet Download Manager!!

    Just trying out the trial was like seeing the ninth wonder of the world! :-D

  242. Heber December 7, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    I could never have this wonderful software, Internet Download Manager. I participated in several giveaways and never, never had luck. Since I use Windows 95 computer. I started with Free Download Manager, but who is that before the IDM? Then came the wave of the Orbit, but it has only promises. When I discovered this beauty IDM only started using this as my partner PC. My net is slow and Internet Download Manager is a big help. However, as I could never buy, install and only lasts a few days. How I wish I could have a full version of this app indispensable in day-to-day of each user.

    A big hug from Brazil!

  243. Tarik December 7, 2012 at 1:24 pm #

  264. Azmi December 7, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    Thanks for the giveaway Martin, I’m currently using Google Chrome’s built-in downloader, and I’ve been waiting for this opportunity ever since I tried using IDM for the first time 2 years ago. IDM is a must-have application for heavy downloaders like me, as it’s simply the fastest download manager ever created. I have used Free Download Manager, Orbit Downloader, JDownloader, Download Accelerator Plus and IDM is by far the fastest download manager I have ever tried, which uses maximum internet speed available by splitting the downloaded files first and it will then create multiple connections so that maximum speed is always achieved. Unlike the other download managers IDM is easy to use, and practically designed for beginners. There are many options that can be customized, including scheduler, download queue, link grabber and many more. The advanced browser integration is what the others are missing. You don't have to open the application first in order to start a download, just click the desired link on the browser and IDM download window will pop out. Right now my built-in Chrome download manager is doing just fine, although there is slight possibility for me to start downloading all over again if the download files get interrupted. I would usually download in the middle of the night, as my internet connection is less stable due to the high latency during the day. Anyway thanks again for this wonderful giveaway, I would be very happy if you could include me in the giveaway. Thanks again and good luck to all contestants.

  265. rusman December 7, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    IDM has been a favorite download manager for decades. However, lately I have shifted to FDM (Free Download Manager) since it is free and nice. However, given a chance (i.e., a valid license), IDM will be my first choice of a DM.

    I usually download files through a very crappy process...although i mostly use Mozilla to download files, it is still not a feasible downloader as files are always prone to crashes bore by Mozilla...

    Otherwise the only other choice left is Internet explorer, which rarely provides me with the option of Pause/Resume Downloads.

    So it is always a rough and a bumpy ride before i reach the destination of successfully downloading a file.

    speed and sustainable together in one click with IDM.

  305. Zi He December 8, 2012 at 3:49 am #

    This is a really good download manager, I have been using it for 3 years now.

    I use it mainly with my firefox and chrome. In firefox i would use flashgot in combination with IDM so i get to choose which to download via IDM. In chrome, i would just use the keys feature of IDM to prevent downloading files with IDM with just a key press.

    Overall i would say, it's quite lightweight and it's ad free compared to some download managers out there and it's really very fast, unless someone can point to me another better alternative, i would say i stick with IDM for downloading my files.

  306. Mongoplus December 8, 2012 at 4:14 am #

  317. whizkidraj December 8, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    The only download manager I've used and currently using is IDM with Patch for registration to be honest.
    I always wanted a key for it since its like a must have software for me and also I find it irreplaceable by any other download manager.
    I love its GUI very user-friendly and very configurable.
    And they are not fake whatever Tonec promises they truly deliver it.
    IDM \m/. Such a complete and best download manager.

  318. Nilesh December 8, 2012 at 10:21 am #

    Most users opined that Internet Download Manager is the best donwnloader which improves much on download speed and at the same time it even supports multiple download queues. I am very interested and prefer much to have a trial on it.

    IDM is a very very powerful tool to download stuff from the internet.But I can't afford it due to it's price.I have been using Internet download manager from past 5 years.Its the best tool to download stuff from internet in terms of simple interface, usaibility and downloading speed using internet explorer, Mozilla firefox, google chrome or other browsers. Especially I
    haven't seen any other tool to download important videos from youtube than using Internet download manager. I used DAP(Download accelerator plus) too but downloading speed is much slower in DAP. I am really looking forward to get a licence of this great product and will be heartly thankful to the author of

    I have been using IDM from past few years and its the best tool in terms of simple interface, usability and downloading speed while using different browsers like internet explorer, Mozilla firefox , google chrome etc. Especially I haven't seen any other effective tool than IDM to download stuff from youtube. But I can't afford it as the price is high for me as I am from India.
    I used DAP(Download accelerator plus) too but the downloading speed is much higher in Internet download manager(IDM). I am really looking forward to get a licence of this great product and will really be heartly thankful to the author Mr. Martin Brinkmann if I am offered a licence.
