I know a lot of people still use IDM but I thought I'd share some alternatives that I use that work just as well. (I am not affiliated with any of these apps, I just want to help people out) Free Download Manager I use this for browser downloads. It has browser integration and also works with torrents. You can pause downloads and resume anytime, which is useful for bigger files. Note: Once you install FDM, it will automatically catch every download in browser. If you don't want it to download smaller files like pictures, you'll have to go to Preferences > General and modify the settings: Xtreme Download Manager I use this one for streaming videos, especially Tidal. It also has browser integration and the ability to pause downloads. I also did a comparison with IDM and XDM downloaded a video in bigger size, which lead me to believe that IDM compresses videos. Here's a comparison of the file sizes, both 1080p. And here is a bitrate comparison. As you can see, the XDM file has a higher bitrate, which usually means better quality. Again, these are just suggestions, if you like IDM you don't have to switch. This is just an alternative for people who don't wanna mess with cracks, trial extenders etc.
