Enable More Than 2 Downloads in IE

One of the most annoying behaviors of IE (5/6/7) is its limiting downloads to 2 at a time.
Once you've started downloading 2 files, the next one would be stuck in limbo, until one of the first 2 finishes, etc.
There have been many registry hacks to solve this situation, but I recommend this one, directly from Microsoft, who finally realized people want to download more than 2 files at a time.

As for me, I'm mainly a Firefox user. But rather than use the limited Firefox Download Manager,
I use the Download Statusbar add-on. Much more robust, usable and with plenty of options.
