Orbit Downloader can manage and accelerate your downloads. This application supports various communication protocols, such as HTTP, FTP, HTTPSW, RTSP, MMS and RTMP, which allows downloading not only standard binary files but also streaming media, including HTML5. You will also be glad to know that it also supports P2P protocols.
The program has an intuitive interface, very similar to that of uTorrent, in which a tree-like organization of the tasks helps you filter them with ease. One of the distinctive features of this program is that it integrates with most popular browsers. Thus, it installs browser plugins that detect downloadable contents. Then, a list is shown from where you can simply check the items to download. Unfortunately, the Google Chrome extension seemed not to work appropriately and generated lots of error messages.
The program features other advantages. For instance, you can integrate it with your antivirus software so that all your downloads are scanned for viruses before you actually open them. In addition, the scheduler helps you program download times so that the use of this application does not interfere with other browsing tasks.
The program now includes a software updater function, which can check your installed programs’ versions and suggest updates for them. However, the results can be a little messy, and sometimes what appears to be a newer version is not. Therefore, you have to be cautious when using this feature.
In general, Orbit Downloader is a fine application, and its developers seem to be committed to its permanent improvement, because new versions are constantly being launched. However, there are still some aspects that need further polishing.


  • It is easy to use.
  • It supports various protocols and content types.
  • It includes a scheduler.
  • It integrates with browsers.
  • It integrates with antivirus software.


  • The Chrome extension did not work right.
  • The software update feature can be confusing some times.
