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.

  7. Pro Microsoft?

    Let’s just say that I decided to take a side early on, and not remain neutral on the matter šŸ™‚ 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…
