Background File Write Extension April 12, 2011

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


1 Yeah, call me the Leonard da Quirm of extension naming :p
