uGet is an Open Source download manager application for GNU/Linux developed with GTK+, which also comes packaged as a portable Windows application.
The fast, secure, and free web browsers built for the modern web. uGet Integration extension is available for all these browsers.
This project is an attempt to fill the gap in download accelerators available for Linux. However, setup for Windows is available for people using uGet in Windows.
uGet Download Manager with aria2 plugin accelerates the downloads equal to IDM & XDM. With uget-chrome-wrapper all you need to do is simply clicking on the download links. You can right click on links and download with uGet even if the extension is temporarily disabled by you.
Sometimes downloading using the browser is a prefereable option. In such case press and hold the Insert key to prevent uGet from interrupting your download. To temporarily disable & enable uGet Chrome Wrapper, use Ctrl + Shift + U.
If I provide Youtube downloader along with the extension, Google will black list the extension from Chrome webstore and which will make installation more complex. There are experts like Savefrom.net in grabbing Youtube download links; uget-chrome-wrapper can grab from them ;-).
This is another form of skiping URLs from being interrupted by uGet Chrome Wrapper. Provide keywords separated by comma in Exclude URLs containing: box. uGet will let your browser to hanlde URLs containing any of those keywords.
I develop this project as one of my leisure time project and I will continue to add more features. However, please forgive me for the slow development lifecycle due to my busy schedule.
If you find any bugs in uget-chrome-wrapper, please report them @ GitHub.
