Flash animations are found on nearly any website, either in the form of ad banners or enhancement effects. Luckily, one is able to get ahold of some animations using specialized software. Flash Catcher is a very simple application designed to save Flash content found online while the user browses the Internet using Internet Explorer.
Lightweight and easy to use
Exclusively addressed to work with this browser, Flash Catcher perfectly integrates into Internet Explorer and provides a very simple way of saving Flash files.
It's enough to right click on a Flash animation and hit the “Save” button introduced by the application in the Internet Explorer Context Menu, pick the location where you want to store the files and that's it.
Since it integrates seamlessly into Internet Explorer, the amount of resources it needs is minimal and it doesn't affect performance at all. Plus, browsing speed remains basically the same.
Suitable for older operating systems
The interface of the application is simple, it all comes down to a single window where you have to provide the location to save the files. Other than that, Flash Catcher is a very easy to use tool that serves its purpose in the right way.
Although it's designed to work with Internet Explorer 4.0 or above, Flash Catcher may not be compatible with the latest releases of the browser, even if it seems to install fine.
All in all, Flash Catcher may be very useful to a handful of users, but more features are a must-have, regardless if we're thinking about saving tools or configuration settings. Plus, a more appealing interface and compatibility with a wider lineup of browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, would greatly improve its chances to survive in such a crowded market.
