How to download multiple PDF documents from a web-page in one click

how to download pdfPDF documents and eBooks are widely available on the web. Nowadays you can find great business-related, educational, entertaining or informative resources online that you can download for free in PDF format. Not only that, you can often find multiple interesting PDFs on a single web-page. All you need to do is to download each of them. If there are only two or three PDFs of interest available on the page, it is not a big deal. But if you come across a page with a dozen or more documents that you simply must have, downloading PDF files individually may become a time intensive and mundane chore.

Let’s take for example one Google search query:

[business tips filetype:pdf ]

This search will return many great PDFs for free download. If you are just starting a business or writing a paper or article, or preparing a lesson for your students, you may want to check out as many resources as possible. If you start downloading each resource separately, you may end up doing this for hours, right?
But don’t worry. If you are a Google Chrome user, there is great news for you.
