apparently speed download is now transformed itself into something called "FOLX"

Folx Internet Download Manager for Mac
Internet Download Manager (IDM) allows increasing download speed significantly, resuming and scheduling downloads. Interrupted downloads are not a problem with IDM Mac apps. Simple and understandable user interface makes IDM a must-have for everyone.

When you switch from Windows to Mac OS you can discover that ToneC haven't released their app for Mac, so you'll need to find a quality IDM for Mac OS X alternative. A great alternative for IDM Mac OS X would be Folx - a free Internet download manager for Mac.

im trying to remember if there was a speed download version for mac os 9 or if it was always osx panther + tiger plus?
