Avant Downloader for Chrome: Comments & Requests

Post by Wr2r » Sat Jan 26, 2013 4:36 am

Hope that this is the right board to discuss this product. If not, would moderators please move it to the appropriate board... :?

The downloader works very well, especially for the multi-stream and video download. But there are some comments:

1. Settings are not stored within the extension's folder but instead in a system folder, causing portable Chrome not working (I would say this is critical for me)
2. It does not close with Chrome (I would say this is critical, too).
3. It keeps on creating a folder under My Documents even when it is no longer my default download folder.
4. It cannot download an image using the right-click context menu.
5. An empty dummy file is sometimes left after the download is cancelled.

Here are some further suggestions:

6. Allow automatic download in background, i.e., neither the download confirmation box nor the main window will pop up (please, please, please!!! coz' sometimes my annoying Chrome reacts very slowly and the download confirmation box pops up only a few seconds after clicking).
7. Create a keyboard hotkey for the context menu.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks a lot for the prompt response, which is much appreciated.

May I just also ask when may the new version be launched?

I'm not sure either. It depends on the progress of "fix bugs"
