I'm curious what is the purpose of a download manager, I try to figure it out with a google search but I still don't understand why someone would use such program
 
this is one persons take on them:
While streaming services have cut down on the amount of downloading most of us have to do nowadays, and built-in browser downloaders can do the job for the casual web surfer, if you’re transferring a serious amount of files on a regular basis then a dedicated download manager is worth a look.


A download manager can prove its worth in dealing with software packages, large image and video files you need to work on, or batches of files that you need to get on your machine. The more downloading you have to do, the better the benefits become—these dedicated tools can boost transfer speeds by splitting files up into chunks or requesting multiple transfers, depending on the source. ( Quoted from GIZMODO WEB SITE)
 
They've been around for a long time but I've never seen the need to use one.
