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!

Ok, i think you have to download some thing that's over 1 meg. Also it opens up this new window.

It kinda looks ugly. They should have keep the download window the same except add the pause button and maybe put the ad at the top, but instead they changed it.

Also does it only work with netcenter?
