GNU Wget is a computer program that retrieves content from web servers, wget program allows one to grab files across the internet just by providing a url. Wget is a very cool command-line downloader for Linux and UNIX environments.

To download a file on Linux you need to type the command # wget site name from where you want to download photos /photos.zip

# wget -r -l 1 http://www.google.com/ command will allow you to download home page of google.com

Axel opens more than one HTTP/FTP connection, $ axel http://google.com/file.tar.gz will download file from the site. The lwp-download program also down load the document specified by the URL given as the first command line argument to a local file.
