Download with Wget
when activated, interrupts the built-in download manager to direct links to Wget
What is Download with Wget?
Download with Wget is a Firefox add-on that allows you to integrate the GNU Wget downloader with your browser. It seamlessly directs download links to Wget for faster and easier file downloads.
This extension offers integration with GNU Wget downloader. By default the toolbar icon is disabled. In this mode, downloads are handled by the internal download manager. Once the extension is enabled from the toolbar button (when the icon is colorful), then an observer is installed. This observer monitors new downloads and sends requests to Wget and cancels the built-in download.
- For the extension to work you need to have GNU Wget downloader installed; https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/
- For the extension to be able to communicate with Wget, a small native client is required. This native client can be found at https://github.com/belaviyo/native-client/releases. You will get the instruction on how to install this native client when extension tries to communicate for the first time.
