This extension connects your browser to the JDownloader. JDownloader is a Java-based download manager. 

This extension offers two operation modes:
1. Sends downloading jobs from the right-click context menu
2. Interrupts the built-in download manager and redirects your requests to the JDownloader

The interruption mode is not active by default. To enable it, click on the action button (toolbar button) once. Whenever the interruption mode is not needed, click the browser action button again to disable this optional feature. The interruption mode is helpful when a website does not provide the download link directly.

Native Integration:
Since this extension needs to execute native commands to communicate with the JDownloader, a native client is needed. The instruction to install this NodeJS native client is shown on the first use. Also, note that this extension only calls the JDownloader, so you need to have this application on your operating system for this extension to work. You can check the code of the native client on There is a short video tutorial about the installation of the native client and its usage:
Also, note that this extension uses the JDownloader's local server to send downloading jobs to this external downloader. Even if you don't install the native client, the extension works fine if the JDownloader is running in the background. The native client is only used to run the downloader when the server is not present.

Risk impact

Download with JDownloader requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Download with JDownloader has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

I installed this yesterday, and today, just after I opened chrome it started bombarding "got empty response" notifications, and opened like 1000 new tabs causing the browser to freeze.

It's confusing to filter stuff on a page to only what you're trying to download. You also have to install a standalone app on your computer. It also randomly downloads whatever the heck it wants from a page you're looking at. I don't know how to make it download _only_ the stuff I tell it to. It's a very powerful tool but the UI is pretty bad--that plus randomly downloading anything it wants without being prompted is pretty rough.
