I have noticed the posting by NAMELESS further down talking about Free Download Manager.
I also see it listed in the FFA section.

One thing I would like to note about this is that it is NOT open source.
It was open source at one point, from version 2.5 to 3.9.7.

Any later version especially starting with v5.0 is proprietary and closed source.

As to whether or not said software can be trusted to remain safe for users at this point is difficult to say and I feel that it should be looked into more and thoroughly vetted.

I also feel that the "open source" part most definitely needs to be removed from the listing as it's false information at this point.
