Every modern browser has its own download functionality, so why should you use a separate application for handling downloads in the first place? Because Leech works better than any built-in download manager.
Working with Browsers

The best download manager is the one that doesn't get in your way.

That's why Leech stays quiet in the background, and works when you want it to. If you're using Safari, you can send downloads to Leech via the Leech Contextual Menu extension.

For all other browsers—and other applications that may contain URLs—you can use drag-and-drop or copy-and-pa

Download multiple files with ranges

Leech accepts URLs with special codes to denote ranges of files.

For instance, file_{1-3}.jpg will expand to file_1.jpg, file_2.jpg, and file_3.jpg. Use file_{a-c}.jpg for a similar range of alphabetic names.

You can even combine multiple ranges in one URL, as in file_{1-3,a-d,g-h}.txt

As seen in that complex example, you can use commas to specify non-contiguous files. In this example, Leech would skip the letters 'e' and 'f.'

Work with listed downloads

With Leech, you can select and work with entries in the download list, which makes it simple to modify more than one download at a time.

Select the downloads you wish to modify, then use the contextual menu to move, remove, queue, and otherwise modify the selected downloads.

Exclude sites and file types

There may be sites and file types that you'd rather have your browser handle. Leech allows you to do just that for its supported browsers, other than Firefox.

List the sites and file types that you'd rather have your browser handle, and Leech will leave them alone.

You're in control

Leech's rules let you define individual download folders and post-processing applications for any combination of file types and hosts.

With rules, it's easy to have movies from one site go to one location, and disk images from another site go somewhere else.

In addition, Leech lets you limit the number of concurrent downloads—this can help speed one download while others wait for it to finish. You can also store URLs for future downloading, and shut down your computer when all downloads have completed.

If you want to control download tasks such as these, Leech has you covered.


You've just copied 20 URLs from a text document, and you want to download them all?

No problem—just paste them on Leech's downloads window.

You can also just drag URLs to Leech's Dock symbol, which doubles as a status display.

Requires OS X 10.7 or newer.
