Very Lightweight and handy DM for Mac(and Windows) with perfect browser integration and easy video downloading features.
Really worths a check.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Lightweight and fast
Downloads are quite fast due to the concurrent download technology and the fact that the program is compiled in C##.
Pro Great workaround for Google Chrome's annoying download interrupting "security" feature
Neat Download Manger for Mac is a great way to stop Google Chrome from interrupting file downloads with it's annoying "safety" feature that requires user intervention to keep a download or delete it. Somehow the browser extension enables Neat Download Manager to bypass Chrome's native download function.
Pro Like IDM on Windows
Pro Can change the default Download directory
And no, it won't create a default folder structure based on categories.
Con Can't change default Download directory
Neat Downloader does not allow users to change the directory where Downloads get downloaded to (default DL directory is ~/Downloads/), additionally, Neat Downloader creates folders for each type of filetype, including: video, audio, compressed, Document, Misc as the corresponding filetypes are downloaded. Not everyone will like having to deal with files nested in folders like this. (July 2 2019 update, the developer responded quickly by releasing a new version with the ability to turn off the creation of folders per filetype kind, but there is still no way to change the default download location yet, hopefully in the next release.) Another missing but basic expected functionality is the ability to set preferences on whether they want to be prompted on each DL where to save the file. Considering there is filtering in the app for different kinds of DLs based on file type, it seems a great oversight that one can't choose different DL locations per filetype. Upon further inspection of the website, it's obvious this software is in beta stage, so, a lot of (planned) features have yet to be implemented. This behavior can be worked around with Hazel, but still, these are really basic functions that are missing. The lack of flexibility to tell Neat Download Manager where we want DLs to go leaves a lot to be desired.
