Download Manager as separate process

Post by defUS3R » Fri Feb 27, 2009 12:22 pm

Hi

My suggestion is to create download manager in Orca as separate process in memory. As a example: i download a file, larger one (apx. 200MB) so when i accidentally close browser - download manager will close too. Some servers does not support to restore connection so i need to download this file from the beginning... As a example with this kind of solution i point out for old (but still good ^^) Netscape Navigator.

Try out Free Download Manager together with FlashGot - works well with Orca.

The download manager in Orca is exactly the same as the one in Firefox - since Orca is based upon Firefox. To extend its capability one must use extensions or external programs.

That also closes when Orca is closed - defUS3R is looking for one that remains separate.
