if ur not sheepish about the Terminal (in osx that is) you can get "cURL". it can resume downloads from ftp and http[s] sites. it also has a bunch of options, which might qualify as the "and more" [over monica] you requested.
actually, and i'm not sure of this, cuz i've done plenty of custom installations on my box, but i think cURL comes with osx. try this from within terminal:
[code]curl -O http: //www.somewebsite.com/somefoldder/somefile.html</pre><hr></blockquote>
and replace with the appropriate words in the proper places. you can also do "
; [note that the dash-oh has a letter 'o' and not zero after the dash] [edit: i put the space after "http:" cuz ubb fxcked it up when i didn't, in curl the space doens't really belong there]
here's another syntax that you might find useful:
[code]curl -o whatIWantToNameTheFile http: //website.com/fileToDownload.htm</pre><hr></blockquote>
with the little 'o' the downloaded file is named "whatIWantToNameTheFile". with the big 'O' it is named the same as it was on the server.
i think, curl will automatically resume the downlaod if you try to download to a filename on your computer that already exists.
[edit: ubb clobbered my attempted examples]
