Parallel downloader in Linux
wget is perhaps the most popular downloader (command) in Linux, but it cannot establish more than 1 connection to the server for max. speed.
Axel is a lightweight download accelerator for Linux that solve the problem.
To install under Ubuntu:
# sudo apt-get install axel
To download a file by using 10 connections
# axel -n 10 http://www.example.com/file.gz
That's very cool!
