This extension enables connectivity between your browser and JDownloader, a Java-based download manager.

The extension offers two modes of operation:

  1. It allows you to send downloading jobs directly from the right-click context menu.
  2. It can interrupt the built-in download manager and redirect the requests to JDownloader.

By default, the interruption mode is inactive. Click the action button (toolbar button) once to activate it. To turn off the interruption mode, click the action button again?the interruption mode can help you when a website does not provide direct download links.

Native Integration: For this extension to communicate with JDownloader and execute native commands, a native client is required. The instructions for installing this NodeJS native client are provided when you use the extension for the first time. Additionally, please note that this extension only connects your browser to the JDownloader, so you must have the JDownloader application installed on your operating system for the extension to work.

You can review the code of the native client at: A brief video tutorial on installing and using the native client is available at:

Hello, I hope you're having a splendid day! I am currently seeking opportunities to expand my business operations by investing in extensions with a significant user base, beginning from 50,000 users and up. No matter if your extension has a modest user base or counts its users in the millions, I am interested and ready to negotiate a purchase. If you are in possession of such an extension and looking to turn it into a profit, please consider reaching out to me. We can discuss the price and proceed with a transparent and secure transaction through a trusted escrow service based in the United States. It's great that Google allows the transfer of extension ownership between accounts, so your Google account ownership will remain intact. If you have any needs, please contact us via the following contacts Whatsapp: +1 (248) 896‑8035 Telegram:
