I refuse to purchase Lightning Download until ALL the many, many bugs of GetRight are included in it. Do they have a bug comparison chart anywhere?

Go!Zilla is now identical to Lightning Download after being bought by Headlight (just different graphics).
Lightning Download is a reduce version of GetRight. It contains fewer features, but is also less expensive.

My unbiased opinion: It is so unfortunate that this product is still ignored in most reviews and such. It is a wonderful program that gained positive feedback in its beginning but for one reason or another, people and the press just lost interest. I hope that the folks that make the app read this--I still use this program. Please make a new version or something, let us users give you one more chance! With enough hype (perhaps new design and feel of a 2.0), this could really pick up steam again.

It works fine with IE7 beta by the way, even though it was not specifically designed to do so. I love it. GetRight is too big, DAP is...a decellerater--this is the best one I've seen. Simple, effective, and works great.

Stable, flexible, small footprint. I like it!

(but the interface is ugly with those black only icons!)

LD has a lot of extras but the big thing... "It's stable"

Seems to be a user friendly application, but I cannot get it to download anything. I keep on getting the error "Cannot Continue Download, Connetion to the internet was lost" I know this is a lie, because I am still using MSIM and surfing the internet. After some improvements in XP compatibility I am sure that this App will go far.
