FlashGot is a Firefox add-on that allows you to customize almost any download manager for use with batch downloads on Firefox.

FlashGot is a free Mozilla Firefox (and Thunderbird) extension that's designed for people who do a lot of downloading. It can handle large numbers of batch downloads with its own download manager. This simple but powerful plugin can even handle batch downloads for many anonymous or redirected download link services such as depositfiles.com, fileserve.com, filesonic.com, hotfile.com, megaupload.com, netload.in, rapidshare.com, uploading.com, uploaded.to, ul.to, zshare.com.

FlashGot is very easy to use, and has lots of customization options that means you'll be able to tweak it just to your liking - you can modify everything from what action takes place when you click a link to what options appear in the FlashGot menu. It also supports a vast number of download managers, which means that you can continue to use favorites like IDMand DAP.

No more clicking multiple links and "Save as" - FlashGot simply scans the page for downloadable links and then you select which ones you need.

Changes

  • Fixed regression, some downloads failing on progress notifications (thanks Juan Manuel Velazque for reporting)

Are you tired of "saving as..." one by one all those movies, music files, pictures, programs and so on? Are you sick of getting them sooo slowly? Are you afraid of losing them in the middle of download if you get disconnected or close your browser, being forced to repeat all that tedious work? Well, you need a download manager...

FlashGot is a free Mozilla/Firefox/Flock/Thunderbird extension (compatible with Netscape too), meant to handle single and massive ("all" and "selection") downloads with several external Download Managers.
