Plowshare - VERY GOOD download manager (Linux only, CLI)


This can down/upload files from/to many filehosts. No popups, no trying to remember how long before you need to check back to get the next one. Doesn't seem to use a lot of memory. The captcha pops up in a separate window when the filehost's ready. In short: provides a ****ing revolutionary improvement in the d/l experience:)

Installed from source perfectly on Ubuntu 13.04. (Minor problem: eventually figured out it uses curl, doh! I needed to install that separately.)

*It can also pass captchas to commercial captcha-solving services; I think these are pretty cheap & or maybe some let you spend a while solving captchas to earn credits. Investigating :)
