The S60 Safari based browser is one of the best mobile browsers out there, but when it comes to downloads I can’t be that appreciative, in fact the downloading ability has been static since the Nokia 3250 the first S60 v3 phone. Its a pain managing downloads, there is no option to Pause a download and it can only be resumed if the browser crashes and that too in a non user friendly way. Bottomline – it needs a overhaul. What is worse is that it only allows us to download files which the phone supports, so much so that even .rar archives can’t be downloaded.
I recently came across SmartGET a python based S60 client by Gazetdinov Albert that handles downloads pretty well. Just copy the link and put it into the application and it will take over from there. There are options to resume, pause, set download times and so on. Pretty nifty; check out some of the features and screenshots below.
