Yesterday my friend called me up asking for a free download manager so that he can download some large files without any problem. I suggested him DownThemAll! Firefox plugin instead of an standalone download manager. I didn’t suggest him any standalone free download manager as most of them comes with ad bars for displaying ads.
Created by Federico Parodi and Stefano Verna, DownThemAll (or dTa as it is also known) is one of the best Firefox extensions. DownThemAll is easy to install, use, and works as described. Better yet, it’s free and is available for Windows platform, Mac OS and Linux. DownThemAll is the only Firefox plugin you will ever need if you want maximum control over multiple, large downloads. This small download manager is also powerful enough to speed up, queue for later, and batch download sets of files from the web based on patterns you define in one click.
You may use it download the links or images contained on a Web page. You can download all links and images, manually choose individual or multiple items, or select links and images through a variety of preset and customizable filters. DownThemAll also contains a download manager and download accelerator that the creators claim “increases speed up to 400%”. The possibilities are endless. Highly recommended for all your download needs!
