Swiss Army Knife of Download Managers

  • In general, I wish Opera had a super awesome download manager, that gives me all sort of information of my downloads.

    The current one (CTRL+J) is nice, and it has all the features that, all other browsers have aswell, and it gives a decent overview. But wouldn't it be nice if opera was better and could create the "swiss army knife" of download pages.

    For example:
    In previous Opera versions there was a "Direct Download" input field. I am missing this, because it makes downloading files much easier. I would use it specially for files that are now opened directly in the browser. I am still using Opera 12.17 for only that.
    Another Idea:
    A website-crawler, that shows me a nice overview of all downloadable files of a website (.js, .css, .png, .gif, .mp4, .flv,...), so I can download the one I want in one click.

    For a download I would like to see following info:
    "time spent",
    "time remaining",
    "current download speed",
    "average download speed",
    "maximum download speed",
    "stop"-button,
    "pause/resume"-button,
    "download again"-button,
    "absolute path to the file",
    "time" of download,
    "date" of download,
    "type of file",
    "target download folder" (for each download),
    "size for file",
    "search-field" that finds the download item by type, date, name, domain
    *maybe include a "ftp" upload/download

    I know the current "download page" has already implemented several of those points. I just wanted to sum up a bit.
