Flareget is a nice app and especially while it is still in beta. However, part of this article is inaccurate. You said that “it is absolutely free” this is not true, most of it is free and integration with Firefox is free via Flashgot but all other browsers use their non-open sourced plugin which costs $10.

Flareget is still good though but I think uGet is just a little better.
