FatRat is an open source extensible download manager for Linux. It is built on top of the Trolltech Qt 4 library in C++. Developing of this program was started in November 2006. FatRat provides few advanced features such as speed limiting, segmented downloads.[1]

It supports a lot of download and file exchange protocols,[2] such as HTTP, Proxy/SOCKS5, FTP, BitTorrent (through libtorrent[3]). Internationalization of interface is carried out with the help of Qt Linguist.[4] FatRat also has RSS feed and podcasts support,[5][6] and it can work with RapidShare web-storage service[7] and with Dropbox and OpenSubtitles.[8][9]

Available as a package of the most popular Linux repositories, such as Debian,[2] Ubuntu,[10] Fedora.[11]
