XDMAN: the alternative to IDM for Ubuntu

Xtreme Download Manager better known as XDman, is a download manager programmed for Linux based systems programmed in Java, although there is a version for Windows that is based on .Net.


XDman is the alternative to IDM (internet download manager) that is used in Windows and as well described is a program inspired by IDM.

It has a great integration with almost all the most popular browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, SeaMonkey or any other browser / application through the advanced integration of the browser.

Among the great range of features of XDMAN that offers us are the following:

Ability to update dead / broken / invalid download links (caused by expiration session) with link refresh option. Scheduling, virus detection, automatic shutdown, batch download, clipboard control, drag and drop, etc. Possibility to run within the corporate firewall as XDM supports automatic proxy configuration scripts, proxy authentication (NTLM, Digest, Kerberos , Spengo), installation without administrator rights. Currently only a commercial download manager supports these features. Supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, redirection, cookies, authentication (including Windows ISA), password management, etc.

Ability to resume, as long as the server where the download is done supports it.

Grabber (site grabber) that allows you to capture all the files of a site by means of filters.
