Download a file from Internet



This component is useful when downloading files from browser, which is tedious due to the dynamic selectors (eg. on a web-page, a frequently updating list of files which can be downloaded i.e. new files are being added to the list or older files are being removed from the list). The component can sniff files using URL and can save them to local directory without any need of GUI automation (unless authentication is required to download file).
This Feature is in Beta state - This component can also be used to download files which require authentication (eg. Username and Password based authentication, Certificate based authentication). For such downloads, authentication should be done as usual using UI automation / Recorder in IE browser.
