Worth noting, the faster easier way to download it would probably be via the torrent file they offer. It can be accessed at the main details page and you can have your client just download the Mac archive.

Took me like 3 days to download the linked file on my gigabit internet, so obviously some throttling happening at the source.

Yeah, started downloading it here, and the transfer speed was equivalent to basic DSL rates, not even the 100Mbps speed we have here. So, I gave up on it pretty quickly.

Was running quicker for me from the torrent than from archive.org (which is usually the case). No idea how long it took me, I tossed it on the torrent server on my NAS and promptly forgot about it until I checked on it now and said it was done and had been seeding a fair bit.

I downloaded it off the torrent in about 30-45 minutes. The regular (HTTP? FTP??) link was coming in much slower; Firefox was estimating something like 12-24 hours, I think, so the torrent is definitely quicker.
