Google Chrome Downloads Extension

Posted by Andrew.

If you want to access Chrome Downloads Manager window, normally, there are three ways:

  1. Cick the menu "Tools -> Downloads"

  2. Press key "Ctrl + J"

  3. Type chrome://downloads/ in the address bar

Google Chrome Downloads Extension

However, pressing Ctrl+J is just so hard, clicking menu or typing commands takes a "long time", so I developed a simple Chrome Downloads Extension for lazy man: visit Downloads Manager directly by one click from the toolbar. :-)

Install Chrome Downloads Extension

I have uploaded this extension to Google Extensions gallery, to install Downloads Extension in your Chrome browser, just follow the steps below:

  1. Visit Chrome Downloads Extension
  2. Click Install button
  3. A Confirm Installation dialog shows, click Install button.

I think that Internet Explorer 8 is safer. Still, I prefer Chrome :-)
And Chrome extensions are great. EriM / Slovakia

What I would like is a replacement of the Firefox download manager. For example, a button to clear finished downloads, and a button to pause them.

Hi, I cannot find an extension anywhere that will open a SMALL window to manage downloads. Yours is the closest I've found, but it open a giant window that does not retain it's size if I resize it and then close it. I want a download popup like firefox. I don't want firefox! I just want that one feature. It drives me crazy. Any help would be appreciated.
