- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17151922, a year agoFirst of all the Add-on works on Windows and Linux. While Windows doesn't need any special configuration, on Linux you need to extract and run a .sh, which is open source and does not need root access because it is installed in the user's directory, so I don't think it can cause any damage, that basically installs a bridge between Jdownloader and the browser. The add-on DOES work and is an excellent alternative to IDM for Linux users, it is not a virus.
I dare to say that jDownloader + Download with JDownloader is the only alternative in all Linux to IDM + IDM Integration Module, this extension deserves much more love sincerely.
- Rated 1 out of 5by bsperan, 2 years agoUse at your own risk! Overly complex install instructions. Requires downloading & running external files. Could not use. Despite neither my antivirus nor an online file scanning site being able to detect anything malicious in the file, it actually erased part of a software tool I tried to use to delete remnants of the install software left behind! Actually, part of the install software deletes itself after seemingly failing to do anything. I honestly can't imagine a more frustrating or suspicious browser addon!
