If you are looking for MiniGet, you have come to the right place. We explain what MiniGet is and point you to the official download.

What is MiniGet?

MiniGet is a downloading program that also serves as a BitTorrent client. It will monitor all Web downloads, whether they are torrents or not, and lets users manage downloads as they please by giving users the ability to stop, pause or cancel programs. The user can see the name of the file in the window for downloads (the user can choose to show stopped, active or completed downloads in the filtering options). The downloading file’s size is also shown, as is the progress of the download, the speed at which the download is progressing, and the time left before the download finishes.

MiniGet has mini in its name for a reason. Designed with a very small footprint, the program achieves its lightness by cutting down on all the heavy configurable features other, full-featured download programs have. In other words, more technical adjustments and downloading options are not available here that would be possible to, for example, BitTorrent. That said, it was built for precisely those users who do not need (or know how to use) said technical features and who want to keep RAM consumption down to their downloads.

Download MiniGet from the developer does not provide software hosting. We send you directly to the developer's site, to make sure you download the latest, original version of the program.
