Speed Download Needs 1Password Support

Speed Download does what it does. I think it does it well, which is why I keep it around.

But earlier today I was downloading some things from a site which protects everything with a password. Some files (.wmv files) downloaded within Safari, so they had no problems. Others (.zip files of the promotional JPEGs and TIFFs) went off to Speed Download, without the username and password, which was, naturally, quite complex and needed to be typed in for every download, despite the server name being the same for each file.

Furthermore, I'm starting to doubt Speed Download for two reasons. One, it hasn't seen an update in quite some time, and two, I'm still not entirely sure it's any better than just letting Safari download things itself. It seems to be, but I can't say I've ever really tested it.

  1. Speed Download is always being updated and regularly tweaked in order to ensure it stays up to par. The latest version, 5.2. was released only days ago. If you have any questions, feel free to visit our brand new website, visit our forums, or send an email.

  2. One thing I find annoying about Speed Download is that it doesn't remember the password for the Premium RapidShare account - every time you add new set of urls you have to type the login and password again - even thou it has the checkbox to save it. I've been searching around and apparently I'm not the only one having this problem.

    Apart from this - very interesting application.
