    No automated downloading from hostings. Only a bit improved WGet, in fact it cannot even use parallel processing to mirror.

    The program is as close as possible to jDownloader, without being a bloatware and being actually really fast with parallel downloads.

    The only downside (for some only) is no automated downloading from hostings, which can be easily circumvented putting all URLs in a .txt file.
