Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) is a download manager that also claims to increase download speeds by up to 300 per cent.

DAP performs this trick by locating the most responsive server using a proximity test, and by splitting the file(s) into several segments and accessing them from multiple sources if necessary.

In our tests with an ADSL connection, DAP was only faster in a handful of occasions, but always saved you the trouble of manually selecting the fastest or closest server.

More usefully, DAP is also a download manager, which is a tool many of us have forgotten about. Today most people download files into a variety of locations where they can often become lost.

DAP keeps track of them all and also provides a handy history of what you've downloaded and when.

DAP will additionally recover and resume a download which has been interrupted by a broken connection. Very handy even if it doesn't necessarily make your Internet connection feel much faster.

An easy to use program that does make a difference.
