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!

Hi all. I have to second george's comment on Smart Download's appearance - It could use a little work. Its dialog box should be smaller perhaps, along with Netscape promotional banner not so "in your face" and taking up so much desktop space. . .

I just used Smart Download on the official Star Wars site, so i know it's working beyond Netcenter but there's other sites it will not.
