5 software alternative internet download manager

If we remember the internet, we will remember the words “Download”. If you remember those words, we will remember with Internet Download Manager software or we called IDM. Internet Download Manager is a very useful software, the first time I tried it immediately fell in love and continued to use it until now. How much do we have to spend to “ask” IDM? I just saw the website which is $ 11.95 / year per PC and $ 24.95 for lifetime licenses. If we have more funds and can be allocated to buy licenses it’s fine and it’s better than we use pirated.

What about those who don’t have funds yet? It would be better to use the free software. There are several applications that have the same function as Internet Download Manager and it can be used as an alternative software.
