Download Wizard download manager replacement updated

Download Wizard, a small, simple replacement for your browser’s built-in download manager, has been updated to version 1.06. It is written entirely in Cocoa, so it integrates seamlessly with Mac OS X and includes features you’d expect from a Cocoa-based application: dock menus, service availability, dock icon status, localization, etc. It strives to be small, fast and reliable while making use of all the abilities of Apple’s Mac OS X. It currently has the following features:

– Ability to transfer files via HTTP (both normal and authenticated) & FTP (Hotline support has been removed but will return in the next version)
– Download resuming if server supports it
– Download recovery if network failure/errors occur
– HTTP/FTP proxy server support
– Drag & drop of addresses right from your browser
– Dock menu for adding addresses
– Dock icon indicates number of active transfers
– Clipboard monitoring
– Available as a Mac OS X service
– Automatic opening of downloaded files
– VersionTracker search in toolbar
– Localized for English, French, German, Dutch, Japanese & Swedish

The above features can be used for free indefinitely. Additionally, a Pro version is available for $17 that adds the following features:

– Download acceleration
– Browser integration with Safari, IE, Netscape/Mozilla/Chimera, OmniWeb
– Browser cookie integration
– PPP recovery
– Basic AppleScript support
