What is Force Download?
Force Download is a powerful Chrome Extension designed to enable the user to download any desired URL, irrespective of the otherwise expected behavior of the browser. The extension not only facilitates the download of URLs but also scans for established requests for audio or video media files, automatically adding links to a recent media list of 10. An excellent tool for sites using embedded MP4 files, however, YouTube is not supported as it does not offer complete files.
