ProZilla is a multi-threaded download accelerator for Linux which supports both HTTP and FTP protocols. It makes multiple connections to the server and downloads the file in portions, thus giving a much better speed rate than the conventional download programs which use a single connection. Resuming connections is fully supported and customizable. The new FTPSearch feature enables retrieving of mirrors, and also pings them to select the fastest server available. Both the number of mirrors to retrieve and the number of servers to ping at once are fully customizable.
