light command line download accelerator


Axel tries to accelerate the downloading process by using multiple connections for one file, similar to DownThemAll and other famous programs. It can also use multiple mirrors for one download.

Using Axel, you will get files faster from Internet. So, Axel can speed up a download up to 60% (approximately, according to some tests).

Axel supports HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and FTPS protocols.

Axel tries to be as light as possible, so it might be useful as a wget clone (and other console based programs) on byte-critical systems.
