Christian Sandvig tried downloading a file of a mere 1.7 gigabytes â€” as he points out, the Blu-Ray version of “Ice Age 2″ is 22gb, and that’s just an animated movie about frozen squirrels or something, so imagine how big a movie with complex ideas might be!* â€” and found that IE, Chrome, Firefox and DownloadThemAll FAILed, in their own ways.
That accords with my own experience. Even if the browser-based download completes, it’s likely to result in a corrupt file. Sigh.
*That was a joke
