axel 2.4 Sub_title: a light download accelerator
compiled in Puppy 4.3.1 (but working in all other older puppies)
Axel tries to accelerate HTTP/FTP downloading process by using multiple connections for one file. It can use multiple mirrors for a download. Axel has no dependencies and is lightweight, so it might be useful as a wget clone on byte-critical systems.
