Download too slow? Learn how to recover your files faster.
Sometimes downloads seem long, even with fiber. Fortunately, some software is there to help us optimize these downloads. This is the case of Internet Download Manager (IDM) which makes life easier.

Once the software is installed, it will take precedence over the download manager of your browser. In Chrome, handling is simple.
With Firefox, the task is slightly more complex since no prompt will offer to activate the module. You will need to go to the dedicated menu from the burger menu located at the top right of the browser.
IDM works well on classic large downloads such as software download sites, Linux ISOs on FTP, or image archives. But do not expect IDM to work miracles on specialized sites like 1fichier, Uptobox et al. The latter have long restricted their service to get you to checkout.
