Default Need Download Manager (Win)

I have already read reviews on the Internet, but can't seem to make up my mind. So I'm asking for recommendation for a download manager. I'd like it to be able to do the following:

1. Integrate with Opera running on Win7. When I'm in Opera and click on a download link, I would like it to sense this and swing into action but not get in my way. Because I might want to click on a few more links in Opera while the download is going on.

2. I can exit Opera and the downloads are still going.

3. I can stop and resume.

4. If I click on more than a few files, it will queue these and wait until the first few are done.

I'm not looking for a site ripper. My problem is I exit Opera while downloads are going, and then I have no way to resume these. Also, I want to limit how many connections I make at once, to save bandwidth. So that's why I like the queue idea.
