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!

It works for me as well, though not on all .exe downloads for some reason (perhaps only from netcenter -- it didn't work at tucows)?

Do we really need more pop up windows forced on us while we download? More advertising? More screen real estate lost? I am dumping this thing, and fast...
