DownZemAll! (download manager)

#1 Post by Midas » Thu Oct 21, 2021 8:12 am

As a former user of DownThemAll! Firefox extension, a new(-ish) development named DownZemAll! readily piqued my curiosity, although I haven't had the time to really check it.

DownZemAll! is multi-platform but I'm assuming the Windows (MSVC) version to be Electron-based, hence my post to "Not Portable".
DownZemAll! is a rewrite of the legacy software DownThemAll! which was an extension for Mozilla Firefox, but whose development stopped around 2016, when Mozilla Firefox migrated to WebExtensions. DownZemAll! is a standalone download manager for Windows, MacOS and Linux. It aims to work with latest versions of Mozilla Firefox [...], and other web browsers [...]. DownZemAll! is written in C++ and based on the Qt5 framework.
The internal web engine is currently:
  • Google Gumbo Parser, for the MinGW and GNU versions.
Gumbo is a small pure-C HTML5 parser (but doesn't parse Javascript)
  • Chromium, for the MSVC version.
Chromium is a powerful web engine (parses HTML+Javascript)

DownZemAll! latest version is v2.4.3, released 2021-10-10 (changelog and downloads at https://github.com/setvisible/DownZemAll/releases).

Great find -- it doesn't look to be Electron but QT based. I definitely look forward to testing this out.

And yes DownThemAll (as you mentioned) was a long-favorite Firefox add-on.
