Download videos with a Firefox add-on

Firefox Video Downloader add-on

Firefox have recently launched a new add-on to their web browser that allows users to download videos from Youtube, Google, Metacafe, iFilm, Dailymotion… and other 60+ video sites ! And all embedded objects on a webpage (movies, mp3s, flash, quicktime, etc) ! Directly !

VideoDownloader adds a small icon on the status bar, at the bottom of your firefox window, and a toolbar button. Just click that and download the video you are watching !

Pretty cool. Firefox never seizes to amaze me, it just keeps getting better and better, leaving Microsoft’s IE further and further behind.

Have been using the FF greasemonkey addon for quite some time now to download youtube videos – got a nice collection of episodes from the Simpso….. err videos for free download..

Pro Microsoft?

Let’s just say that I decided to take a side early on, and not remain neutral on the matter 🙂 That being said, I keep a very watchful and informed eye on the other side (unlike many MS zealots).

Keep your enemies closer, or something to that effect…
