This extension provides a reliable integration to "Internet Download Manager" from your browser. The extension offers two modes of operation:
1. Context menu items over a link, audio, video, and image element
2. Interrupt the built-in download manager and grab the downloadable job to send to the external download manager.

This extension is very lightweight on resource usage. It does not use anything when the network observer is disabled.

A user can define the following conditions to call the external download manager automatically when the extension is enabled from the toolbar area:

1. Only call when file size is larger than a defined value
2. Only call when the file-type is not in the defined list of mime-types
3. Only call when the download server supports multi-threading

Note: for this extension to operate you will need to install a native client. For this project, I am using an open-source NodeJS based native-client. You will be notified of the first usage of the installation guide. This native client is only available on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.

Note: Other extensions can send their download requests to this extension. Read FAQs page for more info

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
