What works

All the tested features, including dropzone, tray, speed limit, site explorer (with saved passwords), GUI options, default download properties, all the options that were tested, etc.

I expect that everything else that wasn't tested should work fine.

What does not

Monitor Clipboard, Open containing folder, Integration in Firefox through Flashgot (Not sure if this could be achieved with some tinkering with the extension, didn't try)


What was not tested

shutdown when done, hangup when done, and similar useless features.

Additional Comments

I encountered two minor issues. - If the window is on a different desktop, and you click on the tray, the window dissapears and can't be brough back. (although the program will still be working, can be controlled to a certain extent using the tray/dropzone options). Only way to bring it back is closing flashget using the tray/dropzone then re-opening. Not really a big deal. - When pasting directly into the main flashget screen, a "new download" dialog opens, as it should, but isntead of directly pasting the contents of the clipboard in the URL entry, you'll get gibberish which would be selected. This in effect means that if you want to add a new download, you'll have to paste twice as opposed to once, which is largely a non-issue.
