An Overview Of The Download Manager Firefox Has Integrated Into This Popular Internet Browser.
File organization can be made easier through using a download manager for data obtained online. Many internet browsers include download management or tracking features, and the benefits can include:
- Easier download management
- Faster download times; and
- More secure downloads
Firefox is one of the leading browsers in this area, with a download manager that also features a pause and resume option. That means users can shut down their computer and continue a download later, or pause it when there are too many programs running and the PC has slowed down.
The manager also shows the progress of each download and has search features so users can find files by name or web address where it was downloaded from. When a file has finished downloading users can choose whether to run the program, or open the folder that it has been placed in to view it in more detail first. These options ensure security against spam downloads that can be picked up online.
Add-Ons For The Download Manager In Firefox
Mozilla has encouraged developers to create add-ons for the Firefox browser, including a whole slew of download manager enhancement applications. Extensions like the popular DownThemAll! build on the basics of the download manager to create a better user experience.
These add-ons make Firefox a more competitive browser when it comes to download management because they allow users more control over how things are downloaded. Some of the best extensions will work to:
- Boost download speed
- Include a download status bar in the Firefox browser window
- Open the download manager in a new tab; and
- Assist in downloading specialized media such as Flash videos
With all of these options, the Firefox download manager is an excellent choice that can be customized to suit basic download needs. Users with more advanced download management requirements may want to consider a more specialized download manager, but there is no denying the benefits of the in-built browser download manager Firefox has developed.
