flareGet – download manager for linux

flareGet is a full featured, multi-threaded and multi-segment download manager utility designed for Linux, Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
flareGet supports browser integration through add-ons and many features, including amazingly fast downloads with its robust dynamic file segmentation algorithm, enhanced browser integration, support for resuming unfinished downloads, and intelligent file management.


  • Dynamic File Segmentation: It uses a robust dynamic file segmentation algorithm to speed up the download. It supports up to 32 segments per download
  • HTTP-Pipelining: In addition to dynamic file segmentation, each segment is further accelerated up to six times
  • Auto Segmentation: When one segment ends, it starts another segment to help terminate another segment more fast
  • Advanced Browser Integration: The only download manager for Linux which integrates with all the browsers to snatch away download url and start the download by itself. It does this magic without any addons
  • Multi-protocol support: It supports HTTP, HTTPS and FTP protocols to let you download files from internet. It also supports pipelining for HTTP and HTTPS protocols
  • Intelligent file management: It uses an intelligent file management system to automatically categorize your files based on their extensions. All the downloads are grouped in different folders as per their categories.
  • Flash video download: One click flash video download from most of the sites is supported for all the browsers
  • Resume support: You can pause the downloads to download them later, you needn’t start from the beginning again. It also automatically retries when a segment or download fails
  • Smart Scheduler: You can easily schedule flareGet to download files automatically. It allows you to start and pause downloading files at the set time
  • Add or remove segments: You can add or remove download segments dynamically without interrupting the download
