Downloading using prozilla - with GUI frontend

One of the drawback of axel is you can not specify ftp username and password. You can use prozilla program, which also makes multiple connections and downloads a file in multiple parts simultaneously thus enhancing the download speed and dwnloading the file faster than a download with a single connection.
 FTP passwords can be specified with the URL, or can be obtained automatically from ~/.netrc if it exists.

 # yum install prozilla

 $ sudo apt-get install prozilla


# rpm -ivh prozilla-2.0.4-19.1.i386.rpm

# proz
