Google Chrome + download manager?
« on: March 13, 2010, 05:48:49 AM »
Hi,

(what feels like) ages ago I used Firefox with an extension (if I recall correctly) and the download manager FlashGet. On a webpage, you could do things like press some hotkey or click something (not sure, it's been a while...) and then it would automatically grab all the linked files of a specific extension from that page.

Is there some solution like that for Google Chrome too?

FreeDownloadManager isn't exactly what you're asking for. It's a standalone application that can integrate with IE, Firefox, and other browsers (including Chrome).

A couple of things it can do, though I haven't used them so I'm not sure how well they suit your request are:

1) Grab a list of all links on a website which lets you select which ones to download.
2) It has a site explorer which lets you view the folders structure of a web site and easily download necessary files or folders.

EDIT: I just found this on the features page (emphasis added):

HTML Spider
You can download whole web pages or even whole web sites with HTML Spider. The tool can be adjusted to download files with specified extensions only.
