Any similar add-on for Chromium based browsers?

about DownThemAll · ·

Does anyone know such a great add-on for Chromium based browsers?

Must have its best option:
- hash sum checking

I could not find. thx

Small EagleGet iconEagleGet has a Chrome extension and can verify checksums

Almost, except:
- is not Open Source
- only has MD5 & SHA1, none of them is recommended to use anymore

If there were something like GtkHashfor browsers,that would be great. :)

Something like Small Hasher iconHasher ?

Yes, something like Hasher except it is used only for text hashing, missing the file hashing option. We are close to find it.

I told you, not an easy task to find a good alternative for DTA on Chromium-browsers. If i find something i will add it as an alternative.

IE hate

about DownThemAll and Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer · · -4 Helpful

Their IE hate message for users with Internet Explorer it very outdated!

"We see you're using Internet Explorer, which is not compatible with this site. We strongly suggest downloading Firefox. We think you'll like it better:

  • Firefox blocks pop-up windows. IE does that just as well...
  • It features thousands of free themes and add-ons. I don't care, but can't argue this point
  • It's far more secure against viruses and spyware. HAHAHA. Take a look at this graph and tell me that NSS labs is lying... 96% protection from IE9 vs 7.6% from Firefox. http://windowsteamblog.com/ie/b/ie/archive/2011/08/15/ie9-with-smartscreen-leads-malware-protection-once-again.aspx
  • It keeps Microsoft from controlling the future of the Internet. Google is already doing that...
  • It's better for web designers and developers. I'm a web developer and I design for IE then test on other browsers. Firefox, Chrome, and Safari can never agree on how to render it after I have it working in IE.
  • Features like tabbed browsing make reading webpages easier Are we still in the 90's? I have been using tabbed browsing since the MSN toolbar had it before IE integrated it."

Why are you arguing this here?
This is a web plugin which probably doesn't work with IE. (IDK the website is unclear)

They won't even let me view their website with Internet Explorer. There is no way to even see what it does without using a different browser. Also their message, as I pointed out, is very outdated now.

I was considering using their software, but I don't know what it does or looks like and they don't know keep their website updated. I hoped they would see a negative review and change.

That is strange.

But this is a Firefox extension. Not really software :/

There are plenty good ones that are separate. IE just doesn't like extensions.

"Take a look at this graph and tell me that NSS labs is lying..."
They ARE lying...

"I'm a web developer and I design for IE then test on other browsers. Firefox, Chrome, and Safari can never agree on how to render it after I have it working in IE."
You're stupid and don't know what web standards are meant for.

Can you give me evidence that NSS labs is lying in their report? NSS has documented their methodologies very well and has presented evidence that they created factual data. The only data you provided is that you think they are lying.

"You're stupid..." Ah, the typical ad hominem.

Is that enough?

If you really believe IE9 detects 96% of malicious URLs vs 7.6% from Firefox without even thinking AT LEAST about cherry picking URLs to give IE the advantage I think you're hopeless. It's common sense for God's sake!

Do you really think a company that says Opera "don't really focus on malware" when they have multiple contracts for fraud protection deserve credibility?

It's not an ad hominem. If you have the courage (what I mean is courage out of ignorance) to say you build sites for IE and when you test in other browsers there's an error and it's their fault you simply don't know about web standards support and about how far Microsoft is from W3C, at all.

Oh good the > You are stupid
wasn't directed at me :D

Great for organizing, pausing, and speeding up my downloads (up to about 4 times faster), this is defiantly one of the must-have add-ons for Firefox.

Good downloader but there are better standalone like HTTRACK.

HTTrack is a web-site copier, not a download manager. I mean, yes, you could use it as a download manager. But the primary purpose of DownThemAll is to manage your Firefox downloads, speed them up. Also you can grab links, images, etc.
