The Orbit Downloader download manager supports streaming media, e-mail attachments and various files from websites. Compatible with many popular browsers, Orbit Downloader lets you pause and resume downloads so that you don't have to download the entire file again. If you need to use a proxy server to download files, Orbit Downloader supports both proxies used in Internet Explorer and a custom configuration.
