If you try downloading really large files in a browser at some point an error can occur, or Internet connection may break and you'll have no choice but to start over again. No fun at all. Modern web browsers should have an option to pause and resume downloads, but it fails too often.

With Folx you'll be able to pause and resume pretty much any download. Folx is the fast and reliable download manager that is very good at downloading big files on Mac and doubles up as a torrent downloader.

There is free Folx and Folx PRO versions
