I would like to ask for your knowledgeable opinions.
I have been using the "Regular" downloader that comes with SeaMonkey 1.1
when I download (I am on dial-up).
Some time ago, I obtained WinGet 1.9 (Indentix.Inc) and use it periodically.
If you click on this link, you will see a screenshot of the WinGet
window as it downloads a file.

WinGet apparently opens several "ports?" or "Lines?" to the source and
downloads via more than one route simultaneously and thus faster..or so
My question is - is what they say true?
I thought that the speed limit for me downloading is the phone line's
kbps and not the "dump speed" from the source.
You can see from the screenshot that it had 4 "lines" running and the
rate at which they downloaded (slower than hell).
I could download the same large file twice - once with SM DM and again
with WinGet and time them...but I'm lazy I suppose.
BTW - I know each of you has a favorite or one you think works better
which I probably will not use.
