Ninja Download Manager can help you download contents from the Internet in a faster and organized way. In my opinion, there are two main advantages of using a tool of this type: reducing download times and allowing to resume paused downloads. Fortunately, Ninja Download Manager has both. The program has a very modern interface, in the style of smartphone APKs. Unlike others, this tool has tabs that separate jobs according to their status.

Just like many other downloaders, this one allows automatic creation of download tasks. For this purpose, it needs to add plugins to Chrome, Mozilla and Opera. Besides, you can also add tasks manually by supplying the desired links. Luckily, the program can detect when a valid URL is copied to the clipboard. Likewise, when you create a new task, you can classify it into existing categories or even create a new one. It is also good news that it can process various simultaneous jobs.

Ninja Download Manager is also very convenient for downloading videos. In this regard, it supports various sites and lets you decide on one of the available qualities. It is also good that you do not need to wait until a clip has been completely transferred to preview it. As a valuable addition, the program also lets you convert downloaded videos to other formats.

The tool has other features that are also worth mentioning here. For instance, you can mitigate a possible negative impact on your browsing by setting the number of simultaneous threads and limiting the total download speed. Similarly, you can use the built-in scheduler to postpone downloads to a more convenient time. There are also some options for those who want to use a specific proxy server. In terms of security, it is good to say that it can be set to inspect downloads using the installed antivirus software. Your privacy can be protected by shredding all traces of your activity, like unfinished parts and history. Finally, there is a login manager to store your credentials for several websites.

In general, Ninja Download Manager can be a fine solution. It can accelerate your downloads, resume tasks and protect your privacy. However, if very fast transfers are a priority to you, it is advisable that you check somewhere else as this program lags behind other similar tools in this respect. The product has a free version that you can use without any temporal limitations. Yet, it has limits as to speed, video definition and automatic task creation. So, you may want to consider spending a few bucks on its Pro version instead.
