Severity: normal

The following page suggests proprietary download managers for Windows and Mac


Both Getright and Speed Download are non free.

For Windows:
I suggest to remove GetRight and leave only Free Download Manager which is free
If you want to add another option I found WinWget:


For Mac OS:
I would like to suggest CocoaWget:

Hope this helps.

Thank you.
