I assumed other XP users had similar download manager problems. After several searches
I found nothing. Not sure what that means. I suppose my problem with XP is somewhat
My home office desktop was built by me. I've got a firewall and few malware apps, but my
operating system runs in a virtual environment. That means an infected system can be

Download managers have features not available with very simple browser applets. Every
week I download new builds of browsers in development. The servers are not reliable.
Managers can retry stalled connections, download files sequentially, schedule downloads,
sleep, hiberate, or shutdown your computer, etc.
The obvious solution is a browser with a full feature integrated manager. (I don't mean a
browser extension or add-on.) Slimjet has an applet that can resume downloads, but it's not
a "real" manager.
Worldwide there must be thousands of obscure browsers. Has anyone created a browser with
a full feature manager?
