Download manager for Ubuntu

I am in a need of a better download manager badly.

Can any one Please tell me the name of a download manager which can download from any file sharing site

By file sharing site I mean rapidshare.com,hotfile.com, megaupload.com, megashare.com etc.

Now,wget can't download a file from rapidshare.

I was advised to use Steadyflow; but it was buggy. There is a dl manager like Freerapid or something; but that doesn't support other sites.

Someone said me to use Jdownloader; But it loses CONNECTION now and then and then I had to manually reconnect the connection; SO i discarded that. So far i google, i got PLOSHARE pretty useful; but it also doesn't support all the sites above. Any ideas?

I would suggest Steadyflow. It's ridiculously light, and can be integrated into both Firefox and Chrome using FlashGot and Chromeflow respectively, so if you use both browsers, you still have a single, comprehensive download history. To install,

sudo apt-get install steadyflow
  • Thanks for the answer. I already use steadyflow; sometimes it shows finished while half downloaded. – rim Jul 23 '12 at 16:36
