Download your files more effectively using this download manager

PLEASE NOTE that Orbit Downloader has been removed and displayed as a download from this website, for this reason: http://www.welivesecurity.com/2013/08/21/orbital-decay-the-dark-side-of-a-popular-file-downloading-tool/

Despite fast broadband, downloading files from the Internet can still take ages. There’s a good reason for this. Your broadband connection is only one segment in the path to your download. There are many reasons why the file you are attempting to download takes an age to reach your computer. The primary will be the bandwidth provided to the remote server. If it’s on a slow connection, your broadband might be capable of downloading the file more quickly than the server can deliver.

Other reasons for slow downloads are the number of people connected to the remote server (as Microsoft found, when they released Windows 7 RC and the demand near enough brought down their servers) and the location. If you attempt to download from a server hosting a file in Finland, the routing from the server to your computer may slow the download. If you are a UK Internet user, downloading from a UK server may yield quicker results.

To help speed up and manage your downloads, you need a download manager and there are few better than Orbit Downloader. On a basic level, this replaces the download manager that ships with your browser and enables you to control where you save your files, to download again if the transfer fails and much more. It works with all the popular web browsers, so you can use the same download manager whether you need to switch between Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Orbit makes downloading much faster as it’s able to source files from other locations, including P2P servers and many others. Note, however, that we do not recommend you downloading files from unknown servers - this is the primary reason for the spread of malicious software.

Orbit Downloader does a lot more than help you download files from the Internet. It also enables you to grab embedded audio, video and other media files and even save streaming media to your hard drive.

Verdict:

One of the best download managers enables you to manage your file transfers more effectively

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
