axel

v 2.17.14 Updated: 5 days, 7 hours ago

A light Unix download accelerator

Axel does the same thing any other accelerator does: it opens more than one HTTP/FTP connection per download and each connection transfers its own, separate, part of the file. It may sound weird, but it works very well in practice.
