I heard that the new Chrome redesign is already live in the dev and canary Chrome channels, so I installed the dev one. Holy cow it's amazing!

- Noticeably faster page loading for me
- The new design is really cool
- All my extensions work and loaded automatically upon logging in

You can get it here:

Definitely my new browser.

Yes I "Paid" $25 for it on thepiratebay:whistling:

Actually I would, been using it for years and years, absolutely love it.
I try it for 30 days and then buy it if it works all the time. I'm currently using Free Download Manager but it is a hit and miss.

Cool! You might want to turn off it's auto association with certain files. I prefer to just have it grab using context sensitive menus otherwise certain links default to download instead of open in a new window. It's easy enough to set though.

It's a good little app, setting it up to capture all downloads is easy, removing some of the stupid notifications can be googled.

The main thing I use it for is to que video & movie downloads between 12-6 wherever I find them as I don't have have access to Fibre or ADSL where I live. So I make use of Telkom's 450gb thing, the downloads are also almost always pause and resumable so I can just add them using very little data during the day and have them download automatically in the evening

Great, I'll check it out.

Currently I'm using FDM for this.
