Enjoy improved FDM 5.1 beta!

Dear all!

Our team is excited to inform you about the release of Free Download Manager 5.1 beta!

We did our best to bring you a brand-new version of FDM with improved stability and performance. This version is fully compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, provides fast YouTube downloads and features a powerful torrent client. Now you can enjoy a more easy-to-navigate interface that supports efficient interaction with the core, which eventually results in lower CPU and memory consumption. Also, you have the option to take advantage of Internet Explorer integration and experimental support of Microsoft Edge. The new ‘Snail mode’ will allow you to get files at low speeds without closing any connections, whereas the file space preallocation feature should greatly facilitate downloading of large files.

We’d like to thank all the users who helped us improve our FDM client by submitting feedback and feature suggestions. Your participation is very important to the overall functionality and efficiency of our client, and we plan to add even more features in future releases.

So, don’t wait anymore, download the new FDM 5.1 beta and share your constructive feedback on our forum!
