Strength:
• Open source. If you are not familiar with "open source", it means this add-on is more secure. Because its code is publicly available for review and contributions on GitHub at https://github.com/LeonardoCiaccio/GrabAnyMedia
• Easy to use
• Attractive MIT/X11 License. This means the software code of this add-on is owned and supported by a friendly not-for-profit community. Instead of a for-profit corporation. And more secure because its full code is publicly available for review.
• Works on most websites. Able to download a wide range of media types. From a wide range of websites. Including videos, audio, and streaming videos.
• Cross-browswer. Available for Firefox, Chromium/Chrome, Opera, Yandex.
• Well documented. Including a video and website.
• Periodic updates
• If it does not find some media files you can use the scanner to potentially find references that are not easy to find.
• OpenDB feature. This optional feature makes it easier to find hard to find media. To do so you automatically share public media links with the OpenDB. Media links which search engines do not index.

Challenge:
• With Chromium/Chrome you need to manually install the extension. Because Google blocked this extension from their website. Due to Google's Youtube policy. But this is outside the control of the developer and this add-on. Alternatively it is much easier to install this add-on/extension with Firefox.
