Download Master is designed to help Google Chrome users to enhance the integrated download manager that this web browser comes with, allowing them to start transferring multiple files to their computer with just a click.
Unless the extension is not installed directly from the Google Web Store, the CRX file must be dragged and dropped in the ‘Extensions’ tab of Chrome in order to have it activated. The extension really comes in handy when you want to download multiple files from the same webpage.
Once installed in Chrome, you can easily access Download Master using the new button that appears in the browser toolbar. To make things even more easy, a new item is added to the context menu, enabling you to open Download Master by simply right-clicking on a link.
What this extension actually does is perform a complete link scan on each website you visit and display the search results within a separate window, where you can apply a set of filters in order to find the files that interest you and save them locally.
The extension comes with advanced filtering options, enabling you to quickly identify files of a certain type (pictures – PNG, GIF, HTML or XML documents, PHP or unknown files) and even download entire websites without altering their internal structure. Furthermore, it allows you to define a custom filter, using either text input or regular expressions.
Download Master is capable of handling one level link redirections and can display the size of the files on demand. It automatically blocks Chrome’s pop-up window that prompts the user for transfer acceptance, so you don’t have to worry about the download process being interrupted.
Some may argue that Download Master is just a browser extension that does not rise up to the performances of an advanced download manager. However, this addon enables you to filter all the links on a webpage and start multiple downloads simultaneously, which surely saves you a significant amount of time.
