Sometimes you might want to download several large files over file hosting provider such as Rapidshare for your projects, but you do not have a premium account that allow you to download multiple files at the same time. But you don’t want to waste time to wait for each of the file get downloaded before downloading the next file, not to mentioned about the waiting time between each files. Or sometimes you found some precious resources for your own use, which is separated to a lot of files by the uploader.

Felt impressed already? Good. But not only that, this software is so special that I love it so much. I had used a lot of different software for the similar functions (of course they doesn’t have as much supported services as in FreeRapid Downloader), but the best part of FreeRapid Downloader is that you just require to copy the link of the files, no matter the http link is mixed-up with other words, or a bunch of links. What’s more it can detect automatically the download link if you just copy a hyperlink, instead of copying the exact download link. That’s (called smart clipboard monitor) what make me feel so in love with it. (Although I knew there will be some other software that have the same feature, but this is the first software I used and it serve me pretty well, so I wouldn’t change my mind for other)
