So, it's better not to use it for now? It does work on Windows 11 very well.
I eagletget portable for simple downloads. If it can't download something (usually videos), I switch to other downloader (Free download manager now)

I have tried many DMs but eagleget suits me the most. I feel other DMs can't compare to EG in terms of speed and consistency

there are a few links, when I use other DMs, the speed is not much different from chrome's built-in downloader. With EG, somehow, it boosts to a much better speed, not super fast but acceptable
the ones I tested includes free download manager, uGet, ninja, xtreme, Ant, downthemall, chrono, http downloader

I'm impressed with Ant download manager speed but the GUI... The worst I have seen

I agree with you about EagleGet. I do wish the project returns or someone will get back to the project.
BTW, why you use portable version of EagleGet?

I liked Ant Download Manager it Vey Fast, but every time I wanted to download something like a video from YouTube
It splits the video into many small part in the desktop screen !!!! and cover all entire desktop screen until the download is complete and all the files become one file!

I am using ADM, got the PRO version as a Giveaway of the Day a while ago and I really like it so far. :) ( But that is my opinion. )
Did you try IDM before ? if yes what is your opinion of ADM compared to it as a performance ??
Edit 1 : as I see it Android app and need android emulator to work in PC

I've had Free Download Manager installed for years but can't recall the last time I bothered using it. I think I chose FDM because it could handle torrents and I needed that feature at the time. Browsers' own basic downloaders work well enough even for very large files if its not time critical.
