Download your desired MP3 songs from your browser. But I don't know if you want to seek for a downloader to download MP3 songs with ease and free since I can't easily download songs from across the web free. If you are with me, a free MP3 downloader is recommended for you. Just like me, I can use Any MP3 Downloader to download a lot of songs. It's really speedy.

You have 2 choice: (WINDOWS)

  • Using a DownloadManager which shows a pop up each time a music or video is being streamed in a page and lets you download it.
  • Using VideoDownloadHelper Firefox plugin (I dont know if it has an alternative forothers or not).
