Google-chrome – Chrome extension similar to Automatic Save Folder for Firefox

automationfirefoxgoogle-chromegoogle-chrome-extensionsnas

This extension allows you to automatically download files with a certain extension to a NAS drive. This could be a torrent, for instance, where download and seeding is automated by the NAS itself, leaving me to go about my own business on my own computer.

Does anyone know a Chrome extensions that mirrors this behaviour?

  • The nearest equivalent extension I know of is Download All.

    However, Chrome API limitations cripple it badly.
    The developer says in this support question:

    the reason that this extension doesn't provide same functionality as in Firefox is that simply there isn't enough API for downloads. Chrome extensions are less powerful than Firefox ones and there is nothing I can do with it, it's up to Google.

    Your files are downloaded to folder where all downloads from Chrome are saved - look at Chrome settings.

    Your only other solution is to use an external third-party download manager, but this requires you to right-click on links in order to download.
