I would like to know if flash could be used to build a download manager with the following requirements:
Cross domain file access over http and https.
Ability to Stream the downloaded file, pause and resume file retrieval between sessions.
An example that would be similar in UI look and feel would be Microsoft File Transfer Manager.
It also need to support multiple platform; windows, mac OS x and various Linux platform.
I looked at Silverlight which had many security restrictions. I also looked at mono which was not stable and required a heavy package distribution...
