Xtreme Download Manager (XDM, XDMAN for short) is a free and open-source universal file downloader for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, developed by Subhra Das Gupta from Czech Republic. It can increase the file downloading speed up to 500%, save streaming videos from almost any video website, resume broken/dead downloads, schedule and convert downloads.

As a powerful cross-platform file downloading tool, Xtreme Download Manager can seamlessly integrate with all popular web browsers (IE, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi, Safari, and other Chromium and Firefox based browsers) to take over the file downloading tasks within a web browser. It employs advanced dynamic file segmentation algorithms, supports multiple protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, DASH, HLS, HDS), firewall rule, proxy server, PAC script, file redirection, cookie, authorization, download queue, scheduler, and more. In addition, it also has a built-in powerful video converter, which allows you to convert the downloaded videos to different formats, so that you can play them across a variety of software and devices.

Some users would argue that Xtreme Download Manager is comparable to the industry leader IDM (Internet Download Manager). It is unrealistic to say that it can replace IDM, but it is a good attempt to replace the inefficient downloading tool built into the browser. In addition, you can also give similar software like FDM (Free Download Manager), PDM (Persepolis Download Manager) a try.
