Thread: Flashget

  1. #1



    Has anyone noticed that, at least in Win98SE, FlashGet versions 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 eat up a LOT of CPU?

    For example, each download thread (each jet) consumes 6.5% of my Athlon 1100 GHz CPU. If I download with 3 threads, CPU consumption will add up to 19%!

    And that's for just one download! But if you have 3 simultaneous downloads, each with 3 threads, you'll end up with 9 threads, and over 50% of your CPU power wasted!

    So, does anyone have an older version of FlashGet, which isn't so CPU intensive?

    Here's a link to Flashget version 0.96a:
    I've used this version for a long time, and I have never seen any reason to update it... (Though I'm not sure if it uses a lot of CPU power too. If it has, it hasn't been anything that I noticed.)


    (Note that the server is very slow)
