@Scott...all looks good, but you can sure tell the difference when you control the file size for your tests and use your browser instead of a Flash based test bed..
I ran similar tests using different browsers, all back-to-back and the speed test results indicate this order for a browsers' download manger's ability to do its job:
1. Opera, fastest download manager
2. Chrome, very close to Opera but just a tad slower
3. Firefox, about 10% slower than Opera or Chrome on downloads
4. Internet Explorer...slowest of all the browsers I tested.
