  • Video DownloadHelper

    Freemium Mac Windows Linux Chrome Firefox Website

    DownloadHelper is a tool for web content extraction. Its purpose is to capture video, audio, and image files from many sites.

    Just surf the Web as you are used to, when DownloadHelper detects it can do something for you, the icon gets animated and a menu allows you to download files by simply clicking an item

    For instance, if you go to a YouTube page, you'll be able to download the video directly on your file system. It also works with MySpace, Google videos, DailyMotion, Porkolt, iFilm, DreamHost and others. You can even setup the extension to automatically convert the downloaded movies to your preferred video format.

    When you are on a page containing links to images or movies, you can download some or all of them at once. Moving the mouse over the items in the menu will highlights the links directly in the page to make sure they are the ones you want to pick up.

    DownloadHelper also allows you to download files one by one, so that you keep bandwidth to surf for other stuff to download.

    Because of Google WebStore restrictions, the Chrome version of the add-on does not download videos from YouTube. Use the Firefox version for this purpose.

  • VPN Master

    Free Mac Windows Linux Vivaldi Browser Chrome ... Opera Chromium Firefox Website

    "Private Network Master" is a browser extension to route all the browser traffic through an external server. Basically, the extension looks for a configurable proxy server of type HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKS4, or SOCKS5 from two free proxy providers and set the returned proxy server to your browser to pass all your traffic through this proxy server. Note that only your browser traffic passes through the remote server, not your entire network traffic. You can configure the extension to find specific proxy servers with predefined properties such as the server type or whether the servers are anonymous or not. After a proxy server is found, the extension uses dyndns.org to verify if you are connected to the internet or not. If there was a problem in your connection, the extension resets the network configuration back to whatever it was before applying the proxy server and tries to find a new server until a reliable server is detected. In contrast to the other similar services, this extension only looks for free proxy servers, so there is no sever cost.

    Features:
    Reliable VPN solution with a lot of servers to select from
    Support server selection customization
    Verify connection issues and reset network if any found

  • The Great Suspender

    Free Mac Windows Linux Chrome Website

    The Great Suspender is a lightweight chrome extension to help reduce chrome's memory footprint for users that like to have too many tabs open at the same time. This extension will automagically unload each tab while retaining its favicon and title text. A tab can be restored by clicking anywhere on the page when it is needed. This reduces the number of dom elements on the page and ensures no memory leaks or excessive javascripts are running. It also offers the functionality to automatically suspend tabs after a user-defined period of time similar to the extension tabmemfree. There is also a whitelist so that this auto-suspend functionality can be disabled for certain tabs.
    It is now compatible with Session Buddy so that suspended tabs can be restored just like loaded tabs. It will also retain suspended tabs after a restart like the BarTab extension for Firefox, meaning that you don't have to wait for all of your tabs to reload when you restart chrome.

  • TabIt - BookMarks

    Free Web Chrome OS Chrome Website

    Inimitable BookMarks Manager by TabIt.

    Bookmarks Manager's functionality can shape all of your browser usage experience. Thus, 'TabIt - BookMarks' will make your Google Chrome even more convenient.

    It takes the default manager's features and improves them with attention to users' preferences and feedback, as well, as extends them with original solutions.

    You can have some folder to be the default(Home Folder) for you to open and save bookmarks to.

    There are four options for bookmarks' thumbnails: Default, None, Captured & Branded. Benefits of the 'branded' thumbnails are best revealed, when used in a 'Home Folder'.

    Three different layouts are available: Grid(of thumbnails), List & NarrowList(similar to the one in Chrome 62).

    Sorting can be done in either: Old-to-New, New-to-Old or Alphabetic order + Put-Folders-First option.

    Available keyboard keys and ShortCuts are intuitive.

    ONE MORE THING: There is a browser-action dialog window, meant to replace traditional 'star' button with an extension-button to create bookmarks. You can understand its functionality from illustrations below, but it's better to give it a try!


    NOTE: This extension has once migrated from another one, that had Bookmarks Manager as a Module, and today goes by the name TabIt - NewTab. Ever since, they have been developing separately. However, when both of them are installed, they will synchronise, in terms of bookmarks editing and thumbnails preparation.


    ***** WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT *****

    • Search bar(engine)
    • Own server-side thumbnails preparation service
    • Drag&Drop to the TabIt - NewTab
    • Drag&Drop to the BookmarksTree in a SideBar
    • ContextMenu for the SideBar
    • Fixation for custom width of the SideBar
    • Availability of offline versions of bookmarked pages and files
    • Better smoothness by animation
    • Dark theme
    • Other prettification :)
    • Your suggestions?
