Downloading, cURL vs. wget

I do more and more downloading using the command line these days, mainly using wget and cURL. This is a good comparison of the two. Both are great at downloading. cURL supports more protocol (outside of http, https, ftp) and is bi-directional. wget can download files recursively (links on a webpage, and links that appear on pages linked from that website, and on).
