DownThemAll: News

Background File Write 0.4alpha May 16, 2011

Basically this extension aims to off-load all file writing to a background “thread”, so that the Firefox user interface stays more snappy, and to avoid certain undesired stuff.

For more information about the tech-reasoning and source code, please consult the github page.

The extensions is experimental and only works with DownThemAll! trunk and Firefox 4/5 (32bit) on Windows right now.
Version 0.4alpha fixes some issues, including a very minor memory leak, and also switches from Win32 API use to NSPR, so that Mac/Linux versions are now within the reach.

  1. Install Firefox 4. This is recommended, anyway. 😀
  2. Install the DownThemAll! Nightly trunk
  3. Install the extension
  4. Tell me about your experiences

(Existing users should be offered an automatic update)

The release is now signed by me (Nils Maier)
