Typically, a download is a file that you will be able to download onto your local computer disk. A web link, like it says, is a link to another page or website.

For example, a download could be software, while a weblink would be the link to access the home page of the software developper.

When you find a download that interests you, you can simply click on it to actually download the file. But where exactly to click? On the download title, next to the little disk. Have a look at this image:

When in the downloads page you can see the Popular and Top Rated menu item in the Main Menu:
PopularVsTopRated
Downloads : Popular and Top Rated

If you click on Popular you will see a list of the most popular downloads. If you clik on Top Rated, you will se a list of top rated downloads.

However, what is the deifference between popular and top rated. The popularity of a download is based on the number of time the file was downloaded. The rating of a download is based on the user votes that this download received.
