On Saturday 14 January 2006 3:22 am, squareyes so eloquently stated:Can anyone tell me what happened with the transfer speeds?, 650kbs is crazy (wish it could happen though)Its probably just a burp in the exchange which for a very small packet travelled quickly. I would not concern myself with it. Its a small bug in Firefox. Don't get concerned, its not worth it.But yes, for big file transfers, use wget or use Konqueror, which seems to be using wget to retrieve files. There used to be a wget plugin that generated a button for Konqueror, but it seems no longer. Maybe its built in.
Are you thinking of KGet? http://kget.sourceforge.net/ http://packages.ubuntu.com/kget A good GNOME alternative to KGet is Gwget http://gnome.org/projects/gwget http://packages.ubuntu.com/gwget And lastly a good command-line alternative to wget is cURL http://curl.haxx.se/ http://packages.ubuntu.com/curlThe "Flashgot" Firefox extension can be configured to launch any one of these when you click on a download link.
