How To Download Files Faster Even From Bad Servers 

We all use internet to download a lot of files in a daily basis. There are some files that have very bad servers and downloading them can be a hideous task. Download managers could speed up downloads upto an extent only. In this tutorial, I am going to demonstrate an easy way to take over the situation.

  • Install Puffin
    Puffin is a web browser with very nice features. It supports flash and fast browsing. We need this browser to continue with the tutorial. You can get Puffin from here.
  •  Transfer to Drive
    Puffin supports downloading to Google Drive. We are going to use this feature. We need to go to download page of the file. When we click download, we will be shown with a dialogue with options ‘This device‘ ‘Google Drive‘ and ‘cancel‘. Choose ‘Google Drive‘. 
  •  Configure Google
    Connect your Google account to Puffin. It will then start transferring the file to Google Drive.
  • Download from Google Drive
    go here and open ‘Puffin’ folder and you’ll see your file there. Download your file from here. Since it is from Google servers, it will download faster.

Enjoy!
