What is wget2?
GNU Wget2 is the successor of GNU Wget, a file and recursive website downloader.
Designed and written from scratch it wraps around libwget, that provides the basic functions needed by a web client.
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.
GNU Wget2 is licensed under GPLv3+.
Libwget is licensed under LGPLv3+.
