What is Aria2 Explorer?

'Aria2 Explorer' is an Edge add-on designed to speed up and manage your downloads more effectively. By capturing browser download tasks and exporting them to the lightweight Aria2 utility via JSON-RPC interfaces, the extension enables multi-threaded and BitTorrent downloading directly in the Edge browser. The enhanced settings allow for advanced task filtering and cloud synchronization of settings, with autosave RPC settings to Aria2. It also includes a built-in Aria2 frontend - AriaNG, with multiple preset styles for user convenience.
