In my entire life, I have never seen a browser capable to download large files (3gb or higher) properly, it always stuck somewhere, interrupt and the resume button doesn't work in most cases, and you have to restart again crossing your fingers hoping for a smooth downloading.

It's really annoying to have the same problem after years of development by all big companies, downloading is a crucial feature in any browser so why it's always neglected, why Microsoft always relying on third-party solutions, is it that hard to invest in a "Download Dev Department" or 3D for short?

I know that this will remain at least a year after I published this message and I hope to survive to see that day when I can download the files that I put on hold.

Hi@Vertinhol 

I totally understand what you're saying, it's my problem too.

I always have to use a download manager like IDM or Jdownloader to make sure my downloads can be resumed safely, browsers aren't so reassuring in that case..
