FlashGot: Yet Another Extension for Downloading Media Files in Firefox

It's been a while since my last post. This article is about FlashGot, another Firefox extension which is similar to DownloadHelper, and allows to download all the links, video and audio files from a web page.

The great thing about FlashGot is that it correctly detects and uses various download managers installed on the system. For example, it detected the KDE3 download manager on my machine, KGet. However, I think it's better to use the browser built-in downloader.
FlashGot can be configured to download only certain types of files, or fetch only media files, the menu entries are configurable so you can add or remove specific options. Below are several screenshots:
