KGet is a versatile and user-friendly download manager. It has a lot of useful features and was designed to work well with Plasma and other KDE applications.
KGet has a long history in KDE, the first version being shipped with the KDE3 series. For KDE4 it was completely rewritten and redesigned. The maintainer started porting to KF5 a few weeks ago and felt like the time is right to make it look more beautiful again! Therefore he asked the Visual Design Group for support. And as part of this design process we would like to ask you first, how you make use of this tool, what you like and what you need.
Call for participation
First of all we want to know if you use KGet right now or if you could imagine to use it in certain circumstances. And unless you completely refuse any download manager we ask you to answer a couple of questions in the following survey.
Do you use KGet?
- Yes, regularly or from time to time (41%, 167 Votes)
- I don't want to use any download manager (24%, 99 Votes)
- No, but I'd consider it if it had some features I'm missing (23%, 96 Votes)
- No, I'm using a different download manager (12%, 49 Votes)
Total Voters: 411
If you say Yes or if you consider to use KGet, and as well if you use a different download manager, please click the link to start the survey. It consists of two parts: the usual questionnaire is followed by another site with questions how you rate requirements.

In case you don’t want to use any download manager we’d like to ask you to comment why. Your comment will help us to align our work. And of course all others are free to comment as well.
