After downloading JDownloader, one of the most comprehensive download management tools, maybe it’s time to get some plugins in order to improve the program.
This is the case of some of the best Google Chrome extensions for JDownloader, which allow the integration of the most useful direct download link (DDL) features right in this popular web browser.
For example, it only takes one right-click on the mouse when visiting a website to grab all the links or any downloadable files and automatically get them added to JDownloader, with no need to do it one by one. This way, it’s easier than ever to use this direct download manager, almost seamlessly.
Contrary to what happens with FlashGot, a JDownloader extension preloaded into the program to complement Mozilla Firefox, Chrome users must choose their own favorite plugin and install it manually.
These are our recommendations regarding the best plugins and extensions for JDownloader:
JDownloader Integration for Google Chrome
One of the most straightforward JDownloader extensions available is JDownloader Integration for Google Chrome. With it, we will be able to send the download links from any website directly to the program interface.
Once installed, simply select the URL or individual links of what you wish to download and choose in the context menu the option Download with JDownloader (or instead just use the button which appears on the toolbar next to the address bar).
Another feature that makes JDownloader Integration for Google Chrome one of the best add-ons and extensions for JDownloader is the availability of filters, used to copy only the links of the type we are interested in (e.g., only images or just external links to free hosting services).
Besides, if you enable the extension JD Remote Control in JDownloader, then you can access to all these functions wherever you are (even on a different computer, as long as you install JDownloader on that machine).
MyJDownloader is a free JDownloader browser extension which allows you to send the URLs you pick to any installation of JDownloader on a different PC (once set previously, of course).
All you need to use this extension is to create a free user account at http://my.jdownloader.org.
Formerly known as JDChrome, Two-Click JDownloader is another time-saving extension for JDownloader which allow us to add links to the downloads list of this software.
In this case, simply enable FlashGot in JDownloader (no matter you are not using Firefox) and after selecting several links the main window of the program will appear, so you can select only those you are willing to download.
