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.
Most people might not consider Firefox to be much of a jukebox, however it does know how to “get down with it’s bad self” with the right selection of extensions. Here are seven of the most popular audio related add-ons for Firefox.
Online Music Player – It is a music player in status-bar. It provides Firefox with ability to play online mp3 music(local file as well), to search and display the lyrics automatically, as well as to manage the music lists.
Fire.fm – Winner of the Extend Firefox 3 contest, Fire.fm is your direct access to the extensive music library on Last.fm. Listen to music related to your favorite artist, and discover new artists and music in the process.
Stop Autoplay – Disable the autoplay of the embedded music and movie.
FoxyTunes – Do you listen to Music while surfing the Web? FoxyTunes lets you control almost any media player and find lyrics, covers, videos, bios and much more with a click right from your browser.
TwittyTunes – Allows to post your currently playing songs to Twitter with a click. As a bonus, you can also post the web sites you’re visiting, videos you’re watching and more!
Music Player Minion – Music Player Minion is a client for the Music Player Daemon network music player. The purpose of MPD and it’s clients is to allow music playback on one PC (such as a home media server) to be controlled from another over the network.
Amazing Media Browser – Amazing Media Browser automatically searches for all embed objects in a web site and shows you a list of the source links. You can then conveniently browse through each link to see the content of the source file.
Is there another speaker-loving extension I might have missed? Which one of these would be your personal recommendation? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll be sure to get it on the list.
Now those of you who follow my other projects know that I do a weekly podcast on and about the Web hosting industry called the Web Hosting Show. Now I have been doing that for about three years, I think I am getting pretty good at this whole “audio recording” too.
So I am curious if anybody out there would be interested in seeing a Firefox Facts podcast? This is just an idea right now, and I would figure that I would cover a lot of what I cover here – but in audio form. I could also take your audio questions and comments or do interview with Firefox “movers and shakers”.
Now I am not going to promise anything just yet, just interested in hearing if there would be any interest from the public in me following up with the project.
