Hi! First of all, thank you for making this GREAT product. I've been looking for a long time for an answer to GetRight, and I think I've found it.

How about adding a feature (like GetRight) where if you add more than one URL which ends with the same file name, it is considered a mirror of the first one? Then before downloading, it pings all the mirrors to find the fastest one, and starts there. If it gets an unrecoverable error, it removes it from the list and tries again. If it times out due to low rate, then it re-pings and tries again.

Also, I believe that GetRight has a special feature where it automatically adds all the mirrors if you download from Tucows (

Another idea (does this already exist?) is to add a minimum speed. If the download drops below this speed for a user-definable amount of time, the connection is dropped and started again (if you use the mirrors idea, you could re-ping the mirrors to see if there is a faster one).

Thanks again!
