What is FDM?
It is my review of “Free Download Manager”. Its short form is “FDM”. It is really free software with premium features. This software provides almost every feature provided by other premium download managers.
- Download acceleration
- 100% free and secure
- Resume download
- Torrent support
I have mentioned only a few features. See the complete features list with a description here.
I found tremendous improvement in download speed. Because it splits the file into multiple files and downloads simultaneously. You can observe it in the below screenshot.
Resume ability is the main feature, why we go for a download manager. Because browser download managers do not give resume ability.
You can also download torrents by using this download manager. But I found the downloading torrent with “FDM” is slower than downloading torrent with Utorrent.
You can even download YouTube videos. It works almost like YouTube video downloaders. That means, if you have this, you can uninstall the YouTube downloader.
Downloading “FDM” and installing is not enough. Because it does not take downloads automatically from the browser. You need to follow some settings.

- Click here to Download the Free download manager. You will go to the free download manager website.

- Go to “options”.
- Click “Settings”. You will see the “Settings” window.

If you enable google chrome, it will open chrome and shows the enable option automatically on the chrome browser. Just click on enable.
If you enable Firefox, it will redirect you to the Mozilla extensions page. You need to enable the free download manager extension there.
FDM really improves speed, but not up to the level of the premium software Allavsoft. It lacks some features like a one-click YouTube video download. When you need the highest possible download speed and more options, you need to buy Allavsoft.
