Image from store Simple mass downloader
Description from store This is a light and unobtrusive chrome download manager and batch/bulk/mass downloader. Good for: Assist the user in batch downloading various resources from the web: ● extract from the bulk links of web pages only desired ones (advanced filtering system) ● give better names for downloading files using the contextual info available for the corresponding links (name masks system) ● organise downloads by directing them to appropriate custom folders (favorite or automatic folders) NOT so good for: ● downloading streaming media or embedded videos ● heavily javascripted sites where download links are generated "on the fly" (on user clicks) so my extension cannot see them in advance for objective reasons) MAIN FEATURES: ● The links may be extracted from active tab / multiple open tabs or from selected text on web pages. Also from the clipboard or a local file or a pattern URL. ● Advanced filtering/mass renaming capabilities using various name masks. Also with user-defined categories for resource filtering. ● For images, there is a special thumbnails grid view where items may be ordered by the size or filtered by width/height. ● Flexible routing system: the user can set Automatic Folders where downloads are automatically directed based on custom rules. ● User-defined Favorite Folders, easily accessible when the user needs a custom download directory. ● Flexible download management, the user can: a) pause, resume, open downloaded files, etc. (usual features) b) set server limits or force sequential downloading mode. ● The URL list can be exported using various name masks Please, note that ● Development is mainly done in Windows, with limited testing in Linux. No testing possibilities on MacOS, sorry. ● Before using, please verify that "Ask where to save each file before downloading" option in Chrome Download Settings is NOT checked. Otherwise, a lot of "Save As" dialog boxes will pop up, defeating the main purpose of this extension (or any other mass downloading chrome extension).

  • (2023-11-06) V K: nice
  • (2023-10-11) Martius Paolo Viña: THE BEST EXTENSION! EVER! PLEASE MAKE A DESKTOP APP FOR WINDOWS THANK YOUUUU!!
  • (2023-10-08) Alex 3D: This is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Exact configurability and flexibility that I required and even more! I needed to move large amount of docs from one server I have no access to on a new destination and this plugin saved a lot of time and my nerve cells. Thank you!
  • (2023-09-22) Marek Lemańczyk: Works like a charm in Opera.
  • (2023-09-11) Steven Buil: Fantastic
  • (2023-08-28) ahmet bilgin: very good
  • (2023-08-22) Prakash Deivakani: Light weight and fast!
  • (2023-08-18) Maitreyi Purohit: This is the 4th app I tried for mass download, and it worked wonderfully well - could download around 1000 files in easy steps
  • (2023-08-13) Jürgen Gehrig: Very nice extension, no overloaded UI, no external download-manager, simply downloading! Exactly what the name suggestet, Thanks alot for this great piece of software.
  • (2023-08-10) Andy Knol: Perfect for raiding file repositories! The applet has several nice features built in, such as showing if you've already added a queueable file to the download queue, and diverse file support. By far the best and most useful / customisable file grabber I've come across (and I've tried many).
  • (2023-08-09) Welcome Thanks: Please add one more very useful funciton: I can add a list of urls and each of the url will direct to a page that contain one or more pdfs, then it will download all the pdf in those urls's page.
  • (2023-08-07) Karthik S: Very useful masssssss downloader
  • (2023-07-28) Ruvym Mykhalets: Worked well to mass download pdf links!
  • (2023-07-04) Alworu Berzenge: -- Just/Only Download the Thumbnail NOT the Final/Original images -- The extension will list the images of the whole page (and therefore of all the posts even those you are not interested in) and will read only the thumbnails and their address, so even just by choosing the box of the images that interest you from all the rest of the others, you will still download only the thumbnails and not the final image to which the thumbnail is linked, so the extension is somewhat useless.
  • (2023-06-25) Tanner Greenwald: No longer works. Images just sit in the download box and don't start.
  • (2023-05-20) Andreas Söderlund: Very simple to use, still has enough options to handle more complicated scenarios. Highly recommended!
  • (2023-05-09) Katheryn Williams: Stop working randomly.
  • (2023-04-03) Peter Storey: The simple task I had was to download a bunch of zip files from a page. However these are not detected or filterable. The only way to do this was to manually work through a huge list of all the page links and individually select each one. So actually slower than right-clicking. Absolute waste of time, for such a simple use case.
  • (2023-03-01) Otsu: It is nice. It's the best extension for the image all download extension, image download extension.
  • (2023-02-03) AL B: Thanks so much, so helpful for mass saving files from a website that i had to individually click open > download... pasted website table into excel, converted buttons to url links then past in to this extension and boom! done and downloading!
  • (2023-01-31) Ahmed Vila: Simplicity makes it daily driver at reach of your fingertips and with no extra steps to take, especially no unnecessary steps. However, you can feel amount of thought that went into details that make it extraordinary. It doesn't have bells and whistles that all other download managers do, but it makes you think if having those in are worth the struggle and complexity of the whole deal compared to this one.
  • (2023-01-23) Matthias Otto: Works really well and reliably downloaded 10,000s of files for me. Could benefit from a more hardened retry-method or better reporting around failed files (i.e. remove all successful downloads from list so I am left with the failed ones). Overall great tool though.
  • (2023-01-23) John B: can you remove the suspicious filename / resolve danger on exe file downloads... this is a serious hamper of what are supposed to be power users.
  • (2022-12-24) Willy B: This is the most poorly designed thing possible. It's not simple it's junk
  • (2022-12-03) Itai Arnon: Very Professional, just what I needed. Hardly simple compared to hack chrome add ins
  • (2022-11-28) E: Exactly what I needed to download multiple pptx files from an online index directory in bulk. No configuration for my use case was necessary. Just needed a few clicks to enter the filetype, select the files and download
  • (2022-11-25) Dmitry Molodkovets: Super helpful extension! Love using it for automating the bulk download process for discographies purchased on Bandcamp.
  • (2022-09-20) Arun: Perfect except for one thing, doesn't offer downloading at once in a zip/rar format one time I downloaded hundreds of images separately and it caused trouble in my windows explorer somehow
  • (2022-09-11) Florin T: Great for using when downloading your humblebundle purchases that contain tens and hundreds of items (books etc.) . Using the humblebundle bulk download option always missed some of the downloads (did not put them in the download queue). I solved this by using this great extension. Thanky you, developer! PS: also useful for websites such as flickr that give you tons of links when you request data takeout.
  • (2022-09-07) Andrey Yashchuk: Life saver apps! Super!
  • (2022-09-07) Yoshikage EHKOS: Easy to use, lightweight, and helpful!
  • (2022-08-31) Eyal M: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!
  • (2022-08-14) Average Ro: exceeded my expectations. had 8,000+ urls (from Archive.org) downloading at once and it worked without a hitch.
  • (2022-06-23) Person on the internet: This saved me hours of clicking download buttons!
  • (2022-06-02) Antreas Ch: Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks a lot!
  • (2022-05-20) Nicolas De Kouchkovsky: Awesome and powerful extension. Gives you control over your image downloads
  • (2022-05-13) Yong Sein Law: Did what I need it to do!
  • (2022-05-07) GCAT01 Living: It didn't work for me. It was great at finding files to download on a page but every time I started the queue it would completely crash Chrome.
  • (2022-04-20) Dominik Barth: Very useful. However unless you have a realtime malware checker like malwarebytes, some downloads come with trojans and phishing scripts which will be downloaded without your knowledge. This has happened on a few occasions and all downloads cease once a rogue site is found. How do i continue the process of downloading the remaining sites?
  • (2022-04-15) Henry Ward: Ended up with this Adware/Malware (https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detections/adware-downloadassistant/) on my computer after installing this It inserted ads into my Google search results. I can't be 100% certain it was this extension but it seems very likely.
  • (2022-04-08) Tadjeddine Nasri: Thanku bro this is great tool 100% Works
  • (2022-03-18) Jakub Kriš (macfrickins): What a beast, I paste 1000 urls and poof, in a minute I have it in my folder.
  • (2022-03-13) Silas Almgren: Took a bit of figuring out how to use it at first, but luckily it has a pretty solid design and achieved exactly what I needed it to. Very well done compared to all of the alternatives I looked at.
  • (2022-03-09) Jorge Wander Santana Ureña: Great!
  • (2022-03-01) Susan Coward: This extension works so well and saves me so much time downloading my work packets from a site the webmaster refuses to update the functionality of. This extension has filled that gap very well. It's as simple or as complicated as you want it to be, there is enough customization there if required and you understand what you are doing, but if not, it is a case of simply clicking.
  • (2022-02-28) Quyên Nguyễn: best extension, great work, I love it a lot!!
  • (2022-02-22) Luis Boni: Parece buena...pero tiene errorer graves que la hacen casi imposible de usar: 1- Al borrar descargas de la lista las continua descargando, solo que ahora no lo podemos ver! 2- Al cambiar el nombre de la carpeta para descargar en una nueva: No le importa y sigue descargando en la carpeta previa 3- Si hay un error de descarga no prueba automaticamente. Y tampoco se pueden seleccionar todas para q intente nuevamente. Hay q ir una por una... 4- No hay un modo para q el gestor de descargas permenezca a la vista Si cambian esos errores cambio la calificacion y la descargo de nuevo ya que la app parece muy buena y si funcionase bien seria excelente
  • (2022-02-18) Aditya Dhingra: Love it ! Very useful !
  • (2022-02-12) Алексей: it saved me from downloading 500 video files manually The only thing i wish it had is ability it import urls in format {url}|{filename} to set filenames automatically

  • (2019-11-15, v:0.830) Stan Shelton: Mass Downloader Changing File Extensions to .txt
    I have been using the product for a couple of years without any problems. Recently, the downloader began automatically changing the file extension of my files making them end in .txt. The nature of my work is constantly having to download files that have the same filenames over and over again, but this has not been a problem for the past 2 years. This started happening all of a sudden.

    First of all, congrats for amazing tool! So... I love hotkeys... and unfortunately you don't have it. It's possible implement? Mainly "import from clipboard" and "start selected". Thank you! =D
  • (2019-10-20, v:0.819) Martin Manning: Congratulations
    With FTP access becoming more restricted for security reasons, there is a real need for other download apps like this one. After battling to download about 2000 files from a large database site, this app was the one that finally made it all work smoothly. Thanks.

  • (2019-09-24, v:0.804) Van Anh: Queue download
    Hi, First of all, you did a great job with this extension, I hope it will run smoothly for a long time. Secondly, I want to ask about queue downloading. I want to download 1 file at a time and try to set Max number of active servers and Max number of download per server both to 1 only. But it hasn't worked so far. It only download 1 file for the first time and download the rest of the files once the first one is finished. So, is there any way to be able to download 1 file at a time? I hope no one has asked this question so I wouldn't bother you in anyway. Thanks for your great help.
  • (2019-09-04, v:0.804) Tony Lawson: Resolve Danger
    This message and "Resolve Danger" button is coming up way, waaaaaay too often. Is there a way to disable it or at the very least, mark ALL items as safe so I don't have to click on 82 individual files to allow them to download? Please help.
  • (2019-08-06, v:0.803) Walter Johnson: Google Sheets
    When I try to grab links from a Google Sheet, I see an error that says "Cannot Access contents of URL "BlahBlah". Extension Manifest must request permission to access this host". Can this be used on Google Sheets?
  • (2019-08-05, v:0.803) Heather Alyssa: Corrupted PDFs
    Used this to mass download PDFs but they're all corrupted. Downloading them one by one doesn't cause this issue.
