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).

  • (2021-04-10) Chris Bloomfield: I love this plugin. Does exactly what it says, lots of options, and well designed.
  • (2021-04-09) Laurel: Awesome. It did exactly what I wanted! It did take a little bit to figure out how to use it, but it still saved me time overall. I loved that it wasn't just a matter of saving the open Chrome tabs to PDF but could actually detect the link on each page that I wanted to be saved to PDF (filtered by extension and text). The interface could be a bit better, and/or the instructions could clarify how to select multiple tabs, but those are minor, given how well it works at getting the job done!
  • (2021-04-08) 工作: 很好的扩展,跟down them all各有千秋,遗憾的是,下载文件时的命名方式无法记住上一次设置,换言之,无法修改默认的命名方式。每次重启浏览器后就得设置一次,无形中增加了操作步骤,很不方便
  • (2021-03-23) Travis White: THIS IS THE BEST! I tried them all for almost two hours today, and this one is vastly superior. Multiple file downloads, fast, east. This dude deserves some donations!
  • (2021-03-18) Hannah Mayo: Same issue as other download managers! After searching for a bulk video downloader, I came across this one and many others. Despite small number of reviews it had good rates so I thought I was making a good choice. Shortly after, I installed it, and attempted to download over a hundred videos for a project I was working on. And to my surprise it (looked like it) did exactly that. All 115 videos in a matter of seconds. Seamless. At first, I was ecstatic, but upon closer look, when I actually opened the videos for playback on my hardrive, they were extremely poor quality. Originally beautiful, full HD videos reduced to around 240p. I tried clip after clip to make sure it wasn't a mistake, and went into the extension settings to see if there was a way to adjust download resolution and found nothing. If this is the way it is supposed to be I will be deleting this just as quickly as I installed it.
  • (2021-03-07) DrHitman27: Has a ton of usefull features, like tab scan for links.
  • (2021-03-06) Anthoni Espinosa Rios: Excelente extensión. Se puede gestionar las descargas de cualquier tipo con una interfaz amigable. El único problema que le veo es que si quiero descargar una imagen en su calidad original, tengo que entrar en la imagen ya sea dándole clic o en inspeccionar elemento.
  • (2021-03-01) C.B. Crenshaw: Very simple and effective extension. Did exactly what I needed and saved a ton of work.
  • (2021-02-25) Mika Hasegawa: Perfect for bulk links downloading! Thank you!
  • (2021-02-18) Mahesh Bandara Wijerathna: Simply perfect. No gotchas. Does exactly what it says. Been really helpful in the past few hours.
  • (2021-02-17) Eric Kinder: So easy to use!! And to think I was trying to scrape sites for links, etc. Thank you!
  • (2021-02-09) Art Valencia: USED to work, not sure what's changed but now I get a much smaller pop up window with some choices and all it wants to "grab" is the HTML for each file. Might as well remove it at this point. Too bad :(
  • (2021-02-05) didi: This app help me a lot!!!
  • (2021-01-24) isis deakin: It's a little hard to understand the more complex functions, but it worked for me when I was in a jam and quickly needed to grab PDF files while making sure I didn't miss any. Thank you!
  • (2021-01-21) Ogün Kovan: how to change download folder?
  • (2021-01-20) Techno Voyage: This extension is so awesome! I love it, as I work for an institution and if I want to download Cambridge Past Papers, this saves me hours of work!
  • (2020-12-14) Μαρίνος Βενιτουράκης: The best "name mask" in web. Save my life. Thanks!
  • (2020-12-08) Ricardo Resende: Thank you so much, this really helped me!
  • (2020-12-01) Anthoni Rios: Las opciones de descarga son increíbles, pero me gustaría que los elementos se muestren y descarguen en el formato original sin recortes o un tamaño predeterminado.
  • (2020-12-01) Mati Roy: I've also tried "Batch Link Downloader", and I prefer the "Simple mass downloader" one because it has the following features: - you can reload the list of links, so you can open the Ctrl. Shift C -> select elements you don't want -> delete, in order to remove sections with URLs you don't want - image list - urls from all tabs - filter urls per name - directory to save the files - removes duplicates
  • (2020-11-29) Jenna Morris: Clear interface, did just what I needed it to do.
  • (2020-11-27) Peter @MotionArraySupport: George, you just saved me HOURS of otherwise trolling through a .JSON for image files. Thank you, thank you thank you! Also it's SUPER SPEEDY!
  • (2020-11-20) Trixy Podds: Great program, did everything I needed.
  • (2020-11-18) Julian Alca: Is there a way to automatically retry selected downloads? If not, will there be an update to allow this?
  • (2020-10-28) HARJINDER SINGH: Loads all the images i want on the website but i am having trouble downloading them it keeps saying it is downloading the images even after they have completed and it keeps saving them as tmp files instead of jpg. Also will not let me clear download list the option does not work for me on chrome
  • (2020-10-20) Sudhanshu Dixit: simple and good
  • (2020-10-19) Select Ch: It is a nice.
  • (2020-10-10) Stephanie Shockley: Did not work at all! It won't grab any of the downloads off the page, just the links to the page the download is on. What a scam! This is the 3rd mass downloader I've tried to use and they all do the same thing. None of them grab the downloads, just the links to the pages they are on. Don't waste your time with these, it's a scam.
  • (2020-10-05) Zulkifli Zakaria: {counter} and {cccc} rename does not work
  • (2020-10-03) Robert Hughes: Great tool! Only thing missing, IMO, is file recursion. For example, if I want to download all the pdfs under a URI path 1, 2 or more levels deep in the folder hierarchy. Right now, I have to browse to every folder. Still a huge time saver though, thank you!
  • (2020-09-25) Johanna Gustafsson: This downloader is amazing! Even myself with zero prior knowledge of how to operate this type of extension it's super easy. Question tho: I'd like to have my downloaded files have the exact same name as my URLs. How do I achieve this? Renaming with {url} removes all "/". I'm sure I'm making a basic misstake but can't seem to figure what myself...
  • (2020-09-23) artemetra: This is one of the most well crafted apps/extensions in general I've ever seen in my life. It's so simple, yet so versatile and flexible, because sometimes i just think "ohh this feature would be very useful" and here.. it's just everything you need. This extension saved my life. Here's a personal thank you, George Prec.
  • (2020-09-22) Vamsi Narla: Recently had to download about 200 odd paystubs and documents. Found this life saver! I love it especially because of the configurations it offers which makes it really great and suitable for all use cases. A++!
  • (2020-09-15) Thanmay Tech: It is superb i was searching to download all my school worksheets and this one was a boon for me,superb
  • (2020-09-14) Kenneth Gillam: It does precisely what I need it to do. Especially when extracting files from tedious MS SharePoint sites.
  • (2020-09-14) Marcel Binder: One word: perfect! Does exactly what it expects you to - but even better with the filters and being able to remove the already downloaded from the list of files! Excellent!
  • (2020-09-14) Lobo Tomy: I've tried several download extensions but this is the only one which can download files sequentially. A real time-saver. Thanks a lot!
  • (2020-09-08) xi si: One of my fav extensions.
  • (2020-09-04) Javier Romero: Great extension but I would love to have the ability to get urls from a text file from my pc. Thanks!
  • (2020-08-31) Benedek Bereczki: Very good extension.
  • (2020-08-27) Gareth Jones: Excellent!
  • (2020-08-23) Nathan H: Amazing, did exactly what I need it to!
  • (2020-08-22) TestFirst TestLast: It's very buggy. The "popup" window doesn't appear (I don't have any popup blocker installed but I do have uorigin adblocker). When it gives you the links identified it doesn't give what's really needed.
  • (2020-08-21) jin jingjin: Very useful!
  • (2020-08-19) María Mercedes Casas: Great work! it saves me tons of time
  • (2020-08-17) Saico-2: I love you for creating this, it's such an amazing time-saver!
  • (2020-08-11) waw4: Perfect! Downloaded over 1,000 images from my Shopify account by using their exported .csv list of my product images and converted that into a text file for Simple Mass Downloader to process, which it did without a single hiccup! Thank you!
  • (2020-08-01) ogd gaming: i am so unbelievably happy this extension dose literally everything i want it to do it is user friendly and is simple and laid out perfectly
  • (2020-07-21) Space Saver: I am able to download hundreds of files without having to manually click on each of them. Thanks!
  • (2020-07-15) Dr. Hisham Abdul Majeed: This is an excellent extension, probably the best i have ever used. A few features would be helpful 1. search templates / keeping the last filters by default most wordpress site uses /wp-content/... to store their post images , and thumbnails has a thumb prefix (which has to be negated), this has to be typed again and again 2.similarly some default dimension filter for image would be nice 3. a regex transformer for would be helpful for downloading the original file from imagehost, right now export as .txt and openup sublimetext/vscode and transform them bug: sometime the downloaded files no longer go to the directory as told, template for directory would be nice too . these are just nitpicks, i am a heavy user of this extension, but i am sure for regular joes this is a very good extension to be honest.

  • (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.

  • (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.
