Component for downloading files

Is there a freeware component available that downloads a file from a specified URL?  I don't want to incite a browser to download the file, I want to open the file directly from my application.  

If that is not possible (with freeware, that is), an alternative would be for me to leech the HTML file from an open browser...is that easy/possible?

Download this component, http://www.torry.ru/vcl/internet/webfileI.zip
Besides downloading a file from a URL,  It contains much more functions.

It is with full source, so you can make use of the part that implements the downloading.

After I downloaded this, I discovered that it wasn't what I needed.  However, I read in the readme file about another component collection (ICS / FPiette).  It turns out that this is exactly what I needed!!

Thanks.

The ICS components are EXCELLENT.  If you are interested in seeing what application I used them in, see the threads in the lounge.
