Yes, this is a great application, however, this particular distribution of wget is source-code only. For binaries of wget, it's probably easier to download wget through fink or MacPorts.

1337 downloader. I primarily like to use this when ssh'ing into other machines to have them download stuff such as the latest wordpress package instead of pushing it to them via ftp. It's also sometimes convenient if my connection is acting up, or if I have terminal open and I know the file I want to get.
