I’m a big fan of Mozilla’s Firefox browser. The browser does fantastic job of rendering complex web pages and  its amazingly faster.

But the inbult download manager is just pathetic!

Yesterday, I tried downloading ubuntu iso from their official download site. The download worked fine until I had to pause. I paused the download, reconnected my broadband connection and woa! The download manager started downloading from byte 01 ! 🙁 ! Whole 634 MB were wasted!

Anyway, I believe its too much to expect Firefox to handle the downloads. I’ll stick to Orbit Downloader which is doing a fantastic job now.

Mozilla – if you are reading this post, please work on the download manager!
