It has been a long time since I wrote about a Firefox extension, so here we go again. This week I was downloading many Linux distributions to test them out, but I was having problems with the downloads because my Internet connection was very unstable.
In order to solve the problem I started researching for a download manager. I was thinking about a desktop application initially, but then I came across DownThemAll!, a Firefox extension that does pretty much all you need for downloads.
The feature that I was looking for was the “pause/resume download” one, but after exploring the extension I realized that it can do much more than that. For example, you can use it to download links, images and objects from web pages, create special filters to download only some files and rename them on the fly. Highly recommended.
