I’d like to announce a prototype/experimental extension to DownThemAll! which I call dTa! Background File Write1.
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 (32bit) on Windows right now.
1 Yeah, call me the Leonard da Quirm of extension naming :p
