Netscape's Smart Download Released

Wednesday November 18th, 1998

Joel Caris writes in to say, "Netscape SmartDownload has been released. This is the Netscape plugin that lets you pause and resume downloads."

Editor's Note: I downloaded it, and tried installing it with the browser (4.5) open and with the browser closed. I wasn't able to get SmartDownload to do anything... I went to Netcenter, tried downloading files from different areas, and got the same old download process dialog box. If anyone manages to get this to work, tell us what you did!

This is completely gay! It opens way to many windows!

Also there needs to be a button "finish later" So i can click it and go play quake then when i start to download it again it just picks up where i left off!

Also before the download starts i can't chose where i want to download it?

This program needs more work! Great idea, but needs work.

Also i hope in N5.0 this will be integrated into Communicator and there will be no ads in Netscape5.0, too.
