I'm looking for a multi-threaded (fast) alternative to wget which can download large files. The choices seem to be aget, axel and aria2. I'm familiar with axel (thanks to apt-fast). Which is the best alternative?
EDIT (based on scott's suggestion): What I was looking for was a download accelerator that could download large files (videos, tar files). I had not used command line accelerators before and it seemed there were quite few options out there. I was evaluating these, and wanted to seek opinion of anyone who has used one of these.
My Answer: I have installed both arai2 (to download torrent files) and axel to download smaller files like pdf, zip files.
