Have you ever been sent a web link to a folder containing a bunch of files to download? Well, it’s a pain to continually right-click and choose save as… and gets exponentially more painful as the number of files increases.
I found a free plugin for Firefox called DownThemAll, which will automatically download every link on a page. It will even give you a list of the files so that you can check/uncheck which ones you want. Downloads are even much faster with it. It is a truly amazing tool that I wish I’d found earlier!
And no, I’m not getting any sort of commission for this free plug.
