Description:   Downloader for HTTP/FTP/BitTorrent/Metalink (1.18.6-1)
aria2 is a utility for downloading files. The supported protocols are HTTP(S), FTP, BitTorrent (DHT, PEX, MSE/PE), and Metalink. It can download one or more files individually or from multiple sources/protocols at the same time and tries to utilize your maximum download bandwidth (by using multiple threads and downloading data from HTTP(S)/FTP, while also uploading to the BitTorrent swarm). Using Metalink's chunk checksums, aria2 automatically validates chunks of data while downloading a file like BitTorrent. There are other alternative applications. But aria2 has 2 distinctive features: (1) aria2 can download a file from several URLs(http/ftp/BitTorrent) and (2) If you give aria2 list of URLs, then aria2 downloads them concurrently. You don't have to wait for the current download queue to finish one file at a time anymore. aria2 uses your maximum bandwidth and downloads files quickly.
