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.

To install axel, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install axel
