    Does anyone know of any free download manager wherein downloads can be paused and resumed?

    Am I left with Safari if I want to pause downloads?
    (I'm using Firefox. No resume button I believe)

    There's always Camino. In my experience it's faster than Safari in most cases and doesn't choke on Flash files. And it also features a basic download manager.

    I use iGetter. It's shareware but you can use it without limits--just have to deal with the nag screen everytime you start it up.

    thanx for the replies.. I've decided to shift to Safari instead..

    althou the fact that long-clicking a link in Safari doesn't give me the right-click options that Firefox does bugs me to death, i'm surviving..

    it works even without paying the $6.85. there will be a reminder that comes up whenever you awaken your book from sleep but thats about it. i think the reminder is worth the convenience. try it before you knock it...
