	<P><CODE>Libretto</CODE> is a multiuser application to manage file downloads from the
		Web navigator. The Web Server executes the downloads and we manage them from wherever we have
		an Internet connection and a Web browser.</P>
	<P>The downloads are executed in the Web Server, and saved in the directory of your choice.</P>
	<P>Every user has a list with his own downloads, and he can start, stop, or cancel them.
		The administrator has a global scope and can do the same over every download.
	</P>
	<P><CODE>Libretto</CODE> is completely developed in <CODE>PHP</CODE>, needs a <CODE>GNU/Linux</CODE>
		Web Server with <CODE>PHP4</CODE> or <CODE>PHP5</CODE>.
		Downloads are executed with the utilities <CODE>wget</CODE>, <CODE>aria2</CODE>,
		<CODE>Enhanced CTorrent</CODE> and <CODE>jigdo-lite</CODE>,
