    Prime features offered by IDM
    1.Higher download speed: - IDM claims to be increases download speed by 5 times, which is very good USP if user have low internet speed. During our tests IDM clocked much higher download speed than normal download techniques. It seems developers of IDM use its proprietary “Dynamic file segmentation and connection reuse” very efficiently which divides file to be downloaded in smaller segments which significantly increases download speed. IDM minimizes the time needed for negotiations with servers and keeps all connections busy. IDM saves all file positions several times per minute. Thus after you stopped / paused downloading or even after unexpected power shutoff, IDM will resume download and assemble file correctly.[​IMG]
