PDF 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. There is a free Chrome extension for downloading all files linked on the page called Chrono Download Manager.
All you need to do is to add it to your Chrome browser for free and click on the green + button to add urls of the pages from where you want to download files. You can download multiple urls at the same time and pause any download you want. When you add url you will see the Naming Mask field where you should write the name of the file that will be downloaded by one url host name.
With this addon you can download images, audios and videos on a webpage and you can also organize downloads by category, type etc.
