HiDownload Platinum download manager no longer free. Possible replacement from CNET.com:

HiDownload Platinum was great because it had a “sniffer”, you’d just click on a link and stream a movie, and it would automatically detect it and save the file.  Fast and powerful.  But I’m not looking to pay $50 for a lifetime license.’


Used to use Orbit downloader, but switched due to constant problems.


Found Free Download Manager on CNET, going to give it a try.  Do’t know yet if it has a “sniffer” option.


If you know of a FREE download manager with a “sniffer” option, please post it in the comments section below.
