Eagleget is a free, universal application designed to make the downloading process faster. It works with all major kinds of downloads, including music, documents, videos and other applications with a single click. Eagleget is compatible with most Web browsers, including all five major browsers - Mozilla FireFox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and Google Chrome - by using multi-threaded technology to accelerate downloads.

The app is capable of auto-detecting when a download link is available on a webpage. Once users locate the link, they merely hover their cursor over it and Eagleget will generate a download button. After that, single click and a quick file type selection are all that's required to begin the download, and Eagleget will store the downloaded file in a special folder that can be accessed at any time.

A nice addition to this feature is the virus can included with the app. Eagleget checks all new files for viruses once the download completes but before the user opens the file, working to prevent unintentional virus outbreaks on the user's computer.

The auto-categorize function does exactly as the name suggests and categorizes items downloaded automatically in order to hasten the organizational process. It can be turned on or off according to the user's preferences.

There's also no limit to the types of sites that Eagleget can retrieve download links, and even includes support for popular websites where media shares occur thousands of times daily, including social networking sites.

Pros:

  • Direct downloads are incorporated to save time.
  • The auto-categorize tool is a neat feature that makes the organizational process faster as well.
  • Eagleget has support for a large variety of web browsers and web sites.
  • The virus check helps users avoid from uncannily infecting their computers with malicious files.

Cons:

  • Seems to be somewhat buggy. For example, one of the features, called Video Sniffer, is supposed to locate downloads for video files without even having to open a Web browser. The in-app search function does not work, as well as expected, however.
