List Of Download Managers For Google Chrome

by Chrome Blog on March 4, 2009

I was just going through some of the feedbacks and requests i got from a number of google chrome users asking for a proper download manager for google chrome. Since, google chrome is fairly new as compared to other browsers so not all popular 3rd party download managers support google chrome yet. So just to ease out this problem, i am listing some of the major download managers that have officially got google chrome support till now and which one can easily use without any problems.

  • Internet Download Manager 5.15 : A free to try download manager for increase download speeds, resuming downloads and a lot of other features packed into it. You can get more details on this here.
  • DownloadStudio 5.1.2 : An ultra-fast download manager cum accelerator with 12 specialized tools for downloading. Free to try software. More details here.

  • Download Accelerator Manager 4.1.1 : A totally free download manager, is easy on system as well. If you looking for a light download manager for chrome then this is a nice choice and free ofcourse. More details here.

If you know of any other download managers that properly support Google Chrome without any issues feel free to add it in comments and i would add it to the above list.

I’ve been using Free Download Manager for a while, and as of a couple months ago it now has support for Chrome. It’s a very simple download manager and as the name suggests it’ completely free. Can download it here: http://www.freedownloadmanager.org

Hello. I’m using Free Download Manager (FDM) http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/. It’s totaly free and it supports Chrome.

5 Riza 03.04.09 at 8:18 pm

Free Download Manager

6 Jager336 03.05.09 at 2:28 am

Free Download Manager supports Google Chrome browser.


7 JJ 03.05.09 at 5:00 am

Orbit Downloader

official changelog says it supports Chrome since Jan.16th, i am using the lastest version of it, and the latest version of Chrome Dev. it works well

8 Jordan Ostreff 03.05.09 at 3:42 pm

http://www.orbitdownloader.com/ also works well with chrome 2.0.167

9 Joe 03.12.09 at 4:18 pm

Download Accelerator Manager itself doesn’t appear to like Chrome. However, the MediaGrabber function does. Go figure.

10 Oscar 03.29.09 at 9:03 pm

I have the latest version of orbit and IT DOES NOT WORK with chrome..

11 Rado 03.31.09 at 7:59 pm

I installed Download Acc. manager , but how could I integrate it in thechrom browser? When I looked into Tools-> Options ->General it it doesn`t show Chrome.

12 Rado 03.31.09 at 8:03 pm

My fault , it is done automaticly :)

13 Douglas 04.25.09 at 8:21 am

I use iGetter as download manager which is great for me, in previous updates of Google Chrome it worked well “capturing” user interaction and downloading files, I do not why it stopped working.

I know that iGetter (www.presenta.net) is not free but is a great download manager that worths every cent

Thanks and Chrome is a great browser!

14 Rodolfo 05.08.09 at 8:56 am

But all of them are extra softwares that I must install out of Chrome… Are there any plugin such as dTa! from Mozilla to Chrome? I don’t want to install other softwares… I want to use only Chrome…

15 dude 05.10.09 at 7:16 pm

Rodolfo, down them all is actually a separate application anyway, dig around in your plugin folder and you’ll find an executable for down them all. So you are already installing an application when you install down them all.

16 kevin rossiter 05.15.09 at 9:46 am

Download Studio 5.1.3 only has partial function when integrated with Chrome .

They admitted this (good) and said they’d have it right soon.

17 DKT27 05.20.09 at 5:15 pm

Download Accelerator Plus(DAP) works perfectly.

18 Rodney 05.28.09 at 12:10 pm

Download Accelerator Manager does not work with Google Chrome.

My specs:
Windows XP Pro w/SP2 64-bit
Google Chrome 2

19 sul 06.14.09 at 1:57 am

Free download manager and Orbit are working with Chrome

20 Arethas 07.18.09 at 9:25 am

Download Master supports Chrome browser as well!

21 Lenin D'Cruz 07.30.09 at 10:57 pm

Let me tell you one thing, Orbit is, so far, not working with Chrome, and I HAVE THE LATEST VERSION OF BOTH.
This is a real pity because I like the interface of Chrome and it is fast, and, Orbit is unbeatable when it comes to downloading STREAMING MEDIA and more!
So, let’s hope that this issue gets resolved by the Orbit guys as soon as possible.

22 Pulkit 08.31.09 at 3:53 am

I want DAP(Download accelerator plus) to work with it… please………

23 Xeon 09.01.09 at 4:54 pm

IDM works great for me .

24 cymby 09.17.09 at 9:17 am

I just downloaded and used the free vision of Download Accelerator Manager 4.1.1. that allows me to download the MP3 formated BBC news. Though it is not convenient for copying and pasting the URL, I still think I will try it for while, because no AD, and has not be detected by our GV while the popular download tools do not work as they should.

25 satria wiguna 09.20.09 at 8:40 pm

orbit is working good in my chrome browser…
this my version :
google chrome (download from d60pc.com)
orbit downloader (download from softonic.com)

26 kasunjmhkd 09.25.09 at 12:58 am

orbit works well with videos with “Get it” function but not totally support for every downloads with chrome
(E.g Rapid share,Hot file downloading)

Any way orbit fully functioned with all downloading & video grabbing in Firefox.

27 satria wiguna 09.25.09 at 12:21 pm

orbit is fully compatible in my machine…………
not especially from hosting site or anything, that is working perfect and very fast when downloading all kinds of file….

i don’t know why anyone says orbit not working with chrome perfectly,,
try when first installation of orbit,, check the chrome integration browser..

28 John IEZZI 10.02.09 at 7:50 pm

Tried 2 configure automatically Free DownLoad Manager (3.0.848) for use wz Google Chrome: unsuccesfully.
Tried 2 configure it manually: FDM asked me 4 the Google Chrome plugin directory.
Is it differente from the one which contains the software itself?
Really dont know.
Someone can help?
Tks so much.

29 bart 10.02.09 at 11:54 pm

@john IEZZI

I am also having the same problem, it says that it cannot locate the plugin and you have to do it manually. I have no idea how to do it, and i dont know what is the problem, because it should’t be like that.

30 j sircar 10.09.09 at 12:18 am

The only one that worked for me is Internet Download Manager. Free Download Manager, Gigaget and Orbit did not integrate and automatically capture downloads .

31 Shot Films 10.13.09 at 4:12 pm

Does Download Accelerator Plus work on Mac?

32 In need of similar feature to DTA's 10.20.09 at 8:11 am

Hello, do any of these have the feature that DownThemAll has regarding images? In DTA you could specify the url and it would pull all images from that site instead of having to download all of them one at a time. I haven’t found anything like this that would work with chrome or on it’s own and am in desperate need of this feature as it saves me a lot of time.

33 Daiah 10.27.09 at 12:11 pm

Here’s mine :

Orbit v2.8.17
Chrome v3.0.195.27

Combination of both works just fine after i enable Silent Mode in Orbit (which is by default is disabled), but I’m not sure though.

34 ic3kit 10.31.09 at 2:12 am

Orbit is not fully functional with chrome. Not all downlaod link open from chrome can use orbit as download manager.(E.g: media fire,hotfile,sendspace ) Only some files are able .( mostly mmorpg downlaod sites)

35 SadistiX 11.12.09 at 12:24 am

I prefer Flashget but it’s still not supported on Chrome :(

36 misty 11.21.09 at 9:26 am

39 HEAVEN 12.06.09 at 8:45 am

dowload accelerator manager… will it work with chrome ..???
i need a download accelerator that work well with google chrome…
please help me…

40 mico 12.22.09 at 9:12 pm

@John IEZZI: just solved your problem. i assume your OS is either w7 or vista. i simply ran FDM using the “run this program as an administrator” option. then go configure it manually :)

41 erick 12.22.09 at 11:01 pm

What a useless article. None of these is an “extension for chrome”. In Firefox, I have “Downthemall” which works for any kind of download. The products listed here are all external desktop apps, which are a pain to use, for example if I want to download a file from within Gmail.

42 Nisah 12.23.09 at 11:58 pm

I love FDM [free download manager] but the key is that it doesn’t work with 64bit versions of any OS it supports.

I too want a userscript.org like extension to Chrome, or simply a better built-in manager that doesn’t add a bar to the bottom of my screen and allows me to remove or re-do individual downloads from my history of downloads.

In my opinion DTA for Firefox is better than FDM, but also Firefox’s built-in download manager is way better than Chrome’s.

43 Perseus 12.28.09 at 12:56 am

ive tried using DAP with google chrome but it doesnt work…i went to Tools->Options->Advanced and then ticked on the “integrate into google chrome browser” but still there’s no difference…chrome still uses its own download thing…and there is no option in chrome to change the downloads to DAP…
anyone knows what i can do?!!?

44 jake 01.13.10 at 12:41 am

Is there a way for chrome via extensions or userscript to call an external program like wget?


45 Larry 02.05.10 at 2:50 am

google is stopping developers from making extensions for chrome that will download stuff from the internet, like videos from youtube or any other site that has videos. other external programs seem to have problems working with chrome, some do , some don’t, it seems to be the luck of the draw depending on your overall software configuration.

i like chrome for its speed, but i will stick with firefox for its flexability and extensions maturity.

but i will keep chrome on my computer because it does a good job of freeing up memory left by other programs, lool.

46 Hamza abd almutalib 03.16.10 at 8:06 am

i integrated IDM but it dose not work with you tube
can anyone help plz?

47 krapnek 03.17.10 at 9:41 am

Hey guys!

I have always used Free download Manager + FlashGot in Mozilla Firefox but I now wish to change to Google Chrome.

The Internet Download Manager program did not work for me and I’m trying to get FDM to work on Chrome. I’ve managed to define de plugin directory and to link FDM to Chrome but now, whenever I want to download a file in Chrome it doesn’t open the FDM transfer window. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong and it would be great to get some feedback.

Thank you!

62 1234 09.25.10 at 9:34 pm

Orbit download does have a chrome plugin and you can download it on installation

63 honey 10.06.10 at 9:30 pm

I want a download accelerator for my chrome, like the one I have for Mozilla, Downthemall, which is awesome. But I don’t want to pay. I downloaded Free Download Manager, and it was unable to integrate to my chrome. I uninstalled it immediately and yet had to deal with the little toolbar they left behind. This sucks. Anybody know of something that actually works?

64 Andrew 10.13.10 at 11:33 am

I tried Orbit and Free Download Manager and none of them currently integrate with Google Chrome. It appears that they may integrate with older versions of Chrome but not the latest 6.0.472.63. What you can do is download the Chrome extension called “DM-Bridge”. This extension will allow you to send the download to most any separate Download Manager from the Right-Click Context Menu. So you will just Right-Click on a downloadable item and you’ll see “External Download Manager Support” as an item in the Context Menu popup list. I’m using FDM (Free Download Manager).

If you try to do FDM, click on options and then monitoring, then click on google chrome….it’ll take over from there….I’m going and and forth to see which one is faster….

67 George 01.03.11 at 11:21 pm

I tried DownloadStudio and it works really well with Google Chrome, much better than FDM or IDM.

68 perler craft 01.05.11 at 3:27 pm

I use dap. it works find with chrome

69 Erick 01.14.11 at 6:43 pm

None of these recommendations is a proper in-browser plugin like “DownThemAll” for Firefox, which is superb and easy to use. These are all software that one installs separately. And most of them are Windows-only. Get with the program already. We’re in 2010, Chrome. Fix your

Nothing is better than IDM, it is the fastest download manager of the world. I have a patch for IDM 5.18, this make IDM full version. So I have full version of IDM 5.18. But unfortunately it is not for latest version of IDM and above IDM 5.18 version says that IDM is registered with fake serial and IDM is Exit. So this patch is only for 5.18, If you want to get this file then mail me at:

86 Wonder Blaster 11.11.11 at 8:23 am

I hope DTA plugin for Firefox works with Chrome. I love Chrome because it is fast but it does not have the plugins the Firefox has. Should be worth it if Chrome can allow those apps to integrate.

And that he actually purchased me breakfast on account of I recently found it for him.. smile. So i want to reword that: Thnx for your treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending enough time to talk about this, I actually feel strongly concerning this and love studying extra for this topic. If doable, just like you change into expertise, do you thoughts updating your weblog with extra details? Its extremely used by me. Big thumb up because of this weblog publish!

96 Jim 04.06.12 at 2:10 pm

OK so everyone is asking for a PLUGIN but people keep suggesting APPLICATIONS. There is a difference. Download helper is a firefox PLUGIN that loads in the browser and runs as part of the browser. If you uninstall firefox, the helper is uninstalled too. Chrome needs an add-on PLUGIN like download helper. If this is not what you’re suggesting, quit wasting time. I read through this whole thread and found nothing!
