IDM stands for Internet Download Manager. Apparently, download managers can speed up your download speed quite a lot, it can even happen that they double the download speed for certain downloads!

After installing IDM, you’ll have to restart your browser quickly:

Speed Up Download Speed Firefox Internet Explorer

When it’s finally installed, IDM will take over all downloads (you can add exceptions). So, basically you are replacing the download manager of Firefox or Internet Explorer with IDM. The built-in download manager of Firefox and Co are usually slower than other download managers.

Increase Download Speed 5 times

Some people have reported that IDM can increase the download speed 5 times. How does it work? Much like the Youtube video accelerator (to speed up Youtube buffering) the download manager IDM is building up several connections to a download. Normally, you’re just using a single connection to download files and that single connection can be limited by the server.

The image below should explain what IDM is doing, every blue bar is a single connection:
