FDM 5.0 Alfa

Dear Users!

Having diligently worked on creating a new FDM 5.0 alpha version for the last months, our team is now delighted to present our latest build which brings a completely new, simplified and more user-friendly interface design.

What’s more, we have already provided some advanced features, such as a drag-and-drop option for all links to download videos from YouTube. From now on, you are able to add them to the client without installing any browser plugins.

We continue improving the functionality of our Free Download Manager, as well as enriching the program with new features. That is why your feedback and comments are very welcome.

Please download it from our Forum.
