    1. Aget is a multithreaded HTTP -for now- download accelerator. Everybody knows about the famous Flashget for Win32. This program is a starting point of a very useful project like Flashget. The aim is to provide as much functionality as we can.
    2. Multi-connection command line tool to download Internet sites. Similar to wget and cURL, but it manages up to 50 parallel links. Main features are: recursive fetching, Metalink retrieving, segmented download and image filtering by width and height.


      The project is no longer developed. Last version, 0.7.0, released in January 2013, can be still downloaded from SourceForge

      Wget2 works multi-threaded and uses many features to allow fast operation. In many cases Wget2 downloads much faster than Wget1.x due to HTTP2, HTTP compression, parallel connections and use of If-Modified-Since HTTP header.
