What program can I use to bulk download this list of links?


I need a program that I can give a lit of URLs to (either paste or in a file) like below and then it must be able to crawl those links and save files of a certain type, like images for example. I have tried a few spiders but not had luck.

Currently, the only way to download everything, is to open each link, then I use the "DownThemAll!" Firefox plugin which selects all the images (or any file type) on the page and downloads them. This works page by page, but I need something similar that works a whole list of URLs.

Does anyone have any suggestions??
Thanks a lot.

PS. Could I also add that it be something fairly easy to use that has a half decent user interface and doesn't run from the command line. Thanks

There's not been any way of doing this from a browser or without downloading dodgy one-hit wonder freeware so I've written a Chrome browser extension that fits the bill.

It's called TabSave, available in the webstore here.

You can paste in a list of URLs and it'll download them, no fuss :-)

It also has the ability to download every tab open in the active window, hence the name. This is the default, just click the edit button to insert a list yourself.

It's all open source, the GitHub repo is linked in the webstore description if you want to send a pull request (or suggest a feature).
