I use htget whenever I'm told about where to get a file via http
but don't feel like navigating around a site or starting a browser.

Otherwise yep, doesn't do much else. Won't work with ftp URL's either
(I do believe wget does). You can use it for multiple gets but only
via a batch file. 
Limited use but not bad. Transfers seem kinda quick.
