Download Demon 3.0

Download Demon launches automatically when you start a download, displaying the name of the file you're downloading, the site from which it's coming, and the folder in which it's being saved. The program tells you how much of the file's been downloaded and the estimated time remaining until completion. It can be used at FTP and HTTP addresses, and it recognises 85 file formats.

The scheduling feature allows you to download files while you're away from your PC. The Download Demon can track multiple downloads simultaneously and, based on your preferences, can list all of them, the unfinished ones only, or only those still downloading. Files land in a default download folder, unless you specify another location. You're then given the option to install them immediately or to view them.

Perhaps the most useful feature is Download Demon's ability to pause and resume downloads - so you can make or receive a phone call, without having to start over. Just click the Resume button to pick up where you left off. Although Pause and Resume work only with servers that support the resume feature, we encountered no obstacles - most servers support it.

You can change the look of the Demon with skins, but the only way to eliminate the marching banner ads that run across the main interface is to hand over $US30.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
