It's often happening when I want to download a file with browser that download fails due to a bad connection and then I have to download a file from the beginning.

Is there an app or browser plugin that is able to continue downloading of failed download?

I found only byte tornado app which is not much help.

Maybe this is not what you are looking for, but if you have installed busybox and a terminal application, you can continue your download with:

wget --continue --output-document file.part URL

If you have an android device try HTTP Downloader. It can be used to request download from any byte offset. So that you can skip how much you have already downloaded & complete the remaining.

After completing, you can join those 2 file parts to get the full completed file. (File joiner is inbuilt in the app. Also they provide free File joiner application for PC)

Here are the links

App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ajk.http.downloader

Note: I am affiliated with the developer Resonance which developed that app and the video.
