JDownloader is probably the best one out there.

Why do you need a Download Manager? I find them all to be useless. Just use the one in your browser.

My internet connection at home is slower than it should be. It takes me hours to download things because the speed is like 70 KB/s. I am now using Down Them All for Firefox, and have speeds of 888 Kb/s for huge files.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Download managers really do not speed up the download very much, there is very little difference between using one or not using one. I have personally tried a bunch( My download speed is like 10kb/s, way slower than yours) and most of them only increased the download speed about 1kb. As far as I know, DownloadThemAll is good for Firefox, although I would recommend a better browser such as Chromium or the beta IE(The Beta may not be as stable as the Release but it is fast!)

Your browser can't rip all the links off a page and download the files they lead to.
Your browser can't easily download files off direct download sites.
Your browser can't auto-detect captcha.
Your browser can't download a bunch of files while you're asleep.
