  • (2023-12-03) patrick healy: It used to work so much better in 2021, but given that many of the websites that I've tried to use it on have since blocked the downloading of videos from their sites, this has basically become virtually useless. Until the author has updated this extension thoroughly, I'll be deleting it, as it is a waste of my time, especially since it generally just provides me with files that can't be opened once downloaded.

  • (2022-04-11) Özcan Özkan: Sadece .html yi indiriyor.sağ tıklayıp "sayfayı farklı kaydet" demeye eşdeğer. Çalışmıyor. Not Working.
  • (2021-09-10) John Ball: Didn't work for me. You can achieve the same thing with Alt+click anyway. Well, not exactly the same, because Alt+click actually does work.
  • (2021-05-02) Jennifer frame: It doesnt seem to work. It just downloaded a useless html file.
  • (2021-01-29) Keith SecTest: Does exactly what it says it does. Some users seem to not understand what it is, what it's for, or how it works, but if you do know what it does, what it's for, and how it works, it works correctly and does exactly what it's designed to do. If you have a link that you KNOW you want to download and expressly DO NOT want to be opened by Chrome in a browser tab, then you click this extension and enter that link there and it will download the file instead of opening or displaying it in Chrome. I suspect many users who give this extension poor reviews don't really understand what constitutes a "file" on the web, and so it doesn't do what they think it should. Bad reviews appear to be caused by misunderstanding the purpose of the extension and what it does and how it does it.
  • (2020-09-27) Mighty Gokks: worked perfectly as described
  • (2020-08-18) super_God: it did not work that much
  • (2019-04-25) John Asendorf: Does exactly what it says it does. Put the URL of something in the URL, force that file to download to your download folder. Kind of clunky since the same can be done with Right Click + Save As ... but if you're working with a known file structure and want to get the files without a bunch of clicking around, this is for you.
  • (2018-10-29) All is ok. Nothing to said.
  • (2018-05-28) Aam Janata Ek Bharatiya Nagarik: The purpose of this extension is not known thus what exactly it does is unknown. One can simply say - Not working / Useless !
  • (2018-04-04) Nacho: Not working.
  • (2018-03-30) Denik Od: Extension work perfectly for me! I was alarmed by the requirement ("View and change your information on the sites you visit") for such a simple functional, but after studying the source code, I can say that the extension is safe ;) Thanks to the developer for the free extension! That's what I was looking for! Note: if your sites suddenly download the link instead of opening, then look in the source code for hash " #MyInternalForceDownload" in the link ;)
