Downloading is the action of grabbing data from the internet (that can be another client, a server, or whatever source of data in the internet you can think of).

It is usually referred to getting files (or any other data of the interest for the final-user), not just any data.

When aMule is getting a file, you say it is downloading a file.

Do not confuse with "upload".
