simple, clean interface. very straightforward download manager including download acceleration and the ability to pause/resume downloads. Similar to that of XDM or IDM

For me it's the second best option, second only to the Free Download Manager. It works well and is very simple. Optimized use of RAM. The only downside is that it has a very old interface.

Great software, has all the features I'm looking for in a download manager (and more), and most importantly it's open source! Can't complain. NB: If you struggle with overly large windows on Windows with display scaling on, try maximizing the main window!

Did what I needed it to do, and easily. I needed to import a simple .txt file with URLs on each line, and get these downloaded in batch. This did it like a charm. My actual use case was to import a comma delimited CSV file which this didn't do but it was easy to manipulate the format on Excel and export as one URL per line which this DM accepted no problem. I will remove one star because the import option should in my opinion include the most common format for importing, most apps accept comma delimited CSV text files.

Pops up a warning from Firefox: "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead"

Relates to an expired certificate dating from 10 August 2020. Not sure how much of a security risk an expired certificate poses, but the fact that it's not been taken care of for four months is not reassuring.

For more, the issuing authority is Sectigo, formerly known as Comodo, which had a share of troubles a few years back.

For discussion of the expiring certificate problem at Sectigo/Comodo, see: https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2020/06/02/the-mystery-of-the-expiring-sectigo-web-certificate/
