    I've been using Firefox 1.0 for a while now and have added various extensions and I've d/l'ed and installed Flashgot and am wondering which download manager to use...

    A lot of people say FlashGet is really good, but I'm hearing that it will install spyware (i.e.: Cydoor) on your system

    Any suggestions for download managers from people using Firefox + Flashgot

    I'm fine with the built-in dl manager. For mass downloading, I use DTA. I tried flashget briefly and didn't care for it. And I also suspected that it may or may not have had spyware, but never confirmed it.
