  1. Google Chrome isn’t good at extensions . Firefox’s Add-Ons Do well.

  2. This extension not only crashes itself but also several other of my extensions on Chrome 14.x

  3. Good, I like the bild-in downloader which are conveninet to use.
    Almost all the browsers has build-in downloader now. Firefox/IE/Avant browser/Now chrome.
