Think that Firefox’s internal download manager might need a few more bells and whistles? Then you really need to check out FlashGot. This Firefox extension will let you download all the links, movies and audio clips on a web page with just one simple click of the mouse.
It is known as one of the most popular, lightweight and reliable external download managers out there. The real benefit with the FlashGot add-on is being able to download multiple files from multiple links at the same time, all at once.
Here are some of the other features worth diving into:
FlashGot Link – downloads through the default download manager the link under the mouse pointer.
FlashGot Selection – catches links in highlighted text/images, attempting also pure text to anchors conversion, performing some “smart” replacement like turning “hxxp://” into “http://”.
FlashGot All – grabs all the links found in the current page and dispatches them to the default download manager.
FlashGot Tabs – performs a “FlashGot All” on every tab open in the current window.
FlashGot Media – it’s enabled only when a streaming video or audio clip is playing in the current browser tab: this command intercepts downloadable addresses of the content pieces played so far in the page and sends them to the download manager.
Here you have five different ways to download files, that you do not have without the add-on in question. You can download the FlashGot add-on from the Firefox Add-ons web site, and learn more about it on it’s official web site – flashgot.net.
