  • (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 Sanchez: 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 ;)
