VisualWget is a download manager that use Wget as a core retriever to retrieve files from the web. You can think of VisualWget as a GUI front-end for Wget that give you all of Wget functionalities (e.g. download resuming, recursive download) plus little management features such as download queue (prioritizing), speed limit and scheduler.


When retrieving a file, VisualWget gather some necessary informations by communicating with Wget, then compute and display a progress bar, speed and ETA within a jobs list that you can easily see and estimate an overall progress by yourself.

A nice feature of VisualWget is that it is entirely self-contained within its own folder. It does not need to be "installed". It does not require any special privileges to use. If you don't want it anymore, just delete the folder.

However, your Windows XP computer must have the Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0 in order to run VisualWget. The simplest way to see if you have .NET installed is to simply try to run VisualWget.
