AmiURLRequester is SHAREWARE, register to get the full version...

We surfers all know this, we have found a file that we wanna have,
but this file is very big and the server is awfully slow. Well,
the guys from Downloadslave (http://www.downloadslave.com) know
this situation, too. So they set up a service, that downloads
the file for you and sends it to your email address. You will
never have slow downloads again!

A friend told me about this service and I decided to give it a chance,
but I had to discover that the equest has to be send by mail, which
is very uncomfortable. The PC lamers have a program called URLRequester,
that writes the request mail and sends it to Downloadslave, but I haven't
found a AMIGA program that does this, so I decided to write my own...
The result is AmiURLRequester!

The features of AmiURLRequester are:
   - a easy to use MUI GUI
   - you can import urls from the clipboard
   - a powerful rexx port
   - example rexx scripts
   - instructions how to bind AmiURLRequester into your browser
   - many other things that you have to discover yourself... :^)

You'll need:
   - MUI 3.5 or higher
   - a tcp/ip stack
   - a big email account ;-)

The following things are different in the demo:
   - there is an annoying requester that will appear at startup
      and quit, the requester blocks for 10 seconds
   - you can request only one url at a time
   - registred users get a personal keyfile
   - importing from clipboard is not available
   - no rexx port
   - no example rexx scripts
   - no shell interface
   - no instructions how to bind AmiURLRequester into your browser
   - no support mailing list
   - no locale support
