Leech - A powerful yet lightweight download manager
Authored by: tonyy on Jun 02, '08 08:29:13AM

From my experience, Leech is simply trying to copy the best of Speed Download, which in my opinion, blows away Leech in performance. Leech doesn't intercept half of what Speed Download does, and for the money, I find SD a much better value and much more reliable in performance and overall compatibility when resuming from interrupted or unfinished downloads. For those that need it, you also have a very solid implementation of FTP, .Mac, iTunes, and secure filesharing with Speed Download. You can also turn them off and hide them if it's not your thing. Leech is cute but way too simplistic in my opinion. Interface wise, Speed Download is simply very Mac like.
