The last time I used this software was when it was version 1.9. Now it's at version 2.82 and has massively improved replacing other download managers on my system like XDM 8beta, IDM, Neat DM, FDM amongst others. It's continuously updated and improving with each iteration.

File centipede is an All-In-One internet file upload/download manager, BitTorrent Client, WebDAV client, FTP client, and SSH client. It is designed to be fast, customizable, and user-friendly. It supports multi-protocols and contains many useful auxiliary tools such as HTTP requester, file merge, and encoders. With the browser integration, you can download audio and videos from websites, even encrypted videos.

Website: File Centipede Official Website
Github: GitHub - filecxx/FileCentipede: Cross-platform internet upload/download manager for HTTP(S), FTP(S), SSH, magnet-link, BitTorrent, m3u8, ed2k, and online videos. WebDAV client, FTP client, SSH client.

It seems like the v2.x is available as a premium version on the website, however you can activate it for free using an activation code from it's website here: Activation code - File Centipede
Am not sure how long the activation codes work for free and if we need to update it time to time, but will update you the longer I use it. It looks like the developer is ready to make it's "premium" version available for free if GitHub repository receives 100K stars which is currently at 4.1K stars, so this software could sure take advantage of visibility and WOM.

I came across the 2.x series of this software because my previous download manager of choice, XDM 8.0 beta has been a hit or miss with it's download speeds lately.
