Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Right now I have no other choice but to open the desired link in Firefox and then download it with DownThemAll!

It would be great to find an alternative to DownThemAll! for Chrome.

What are you trying to do? Chrome/Chromium's built-in download manager works well for small numbers of files. –  Matthew Jan 9 '10 at 22:26

The only one I know of is http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2010/12/finally-download-accelerator-for-linux.html

but I would recommend using wget or torrents for large files.
