Quickly Download Files Using This Firefox Add-on


Turbo Download Manager is a lightweight Firefox add-on that makes it easy to manage multiple downloads. It is also available for Chrome and Opera.

It can resume interrupted downloads and directly download videos, images and audio embedded within webpages.

As it is a multi-threaded download manager, parallel downloads are faster and also optimized for low bandwidth networks.

So if the remote server from which files are to be downloaded supports multi-threading, Turbo Download Manager will split the files into small chunks and download them in parallel. If the remote server doesn’t support this, then the usual browser download manager will be used.

Download and install it for Firefox from here. It is also available for Chrome and Opera.
