increase my download speeds with the Chrome built-in download manager? vicwac 5/13/10 8:46 AM
I find that the Chrome download manager throttles my download speeds, sometimes down to 10 kb/s for certain websites. I know this because using Orbit, I download the same file at 200+ kb/s. How do increase download speed, or stop the throttling? I can't get Orbit or FDM to pick up some downloads, especially those that require you to click a button to download the file(mp3ify.com for example). I just upgraded to the 5.0.375.38 beta version and I still have the same problem.

I really like all the other functions that Chrome has to offer, and judging from what I've been reading on the web, I'm not the only person who's frustrated with the built-in download manager, and not being able to remove or at least disable it. I mean, we're already using your browser, why force us to use the download manager
