    I think that XDM is a very good alternative to IDM because it allows you to download videos on many sites other than YouTube (ENI platform, LinkedIn for example) like IDM does. On the other hand, IDM sometimes preserves the file name while XDM does not, which is annoying if you download a series of videos because you have to rename everything by hand. Translation FR OK.

    DownThemAll was and is one of the best free download managers out there. I used to use it on Firefox until Firefox drastically changed how extensions worked and then DTA wasn't supported on it for a short time. However, it's working on Firefox again.
