If you're a massive user of both Rapidshare and Megaupload it's a pain to use two separate administrators to manage your upload and downloads.
In the case of Rapidshare the most annoying thing is that you have to wait before you can click on a file to download it. FreeRapid Downloader offers a more holistic way to manage your downloads and uploads in one convenient application. It lets you download files hosted on Megaupload, Rapidshare, Netload or FileFactory without needing to click a single thing.
FreeRapid Downloader basically works by allowing you to add several links at the same time until they're queued up waiting to go. It can even monitor your clipboard for links that are cut to it and automatically add them to your queue. While this definitely makes managing your downloads easier, it still only downloads files one by one meaning if you've got several files from several file sharing sites, it can be painfully slow.
FreeRapìd Downloader will make your file sharing site downloads easier to manage although not speed them up in any significant way.

"Author's point of view"
I would like to make corrections of some things in the main review.
Con "Only downloads files one at a time" is not a con of Freerapid Downloader, but it's a con of download services (like RapidShare, MegaUpload). Eg. Netload.in supports 2 connections at once.
FreeRapid downloader supports Rapidshare premium as another plugin - then you can download as many files at once you want.
And now the most important thing - why this software was created - it supports downloading with a proxy list -> the count of downloading connections is limited to a count of the web proxies you have (to hide your real IP). So it can reduce downloading time rapidly.
