All caps is considered shouting on the internet. Shouting is not polite. Therefore, it is bad netiquette to use all caps on the internet because shouting is not polite.

I decided to make a “lite” DTA web extension after all.
Of course, it will have serious limitations and far fewer features, but that’s a limitation of WebExtensions and what can you do? Those limitations so far created a bunch of road blocks that will prevent DTA from working correctly in a lot of cases (like the inability to specify HTTP Referers).

On a maybe positive, it should be easy enough to support Chrome too (and Opera, etc?)

This is roughly the progress so far. I also implemented the Add Download (single URL) user interface for the most part, as well as internal queue tracking.

Regarding the actual downloading, I am still undecided how to best proceed there. There is things we could do with blob: “files” to support segmented downloads and proper resuming and a ton of other things, but browser support right now looks fragile at best…

I’ll update y’all once I got a version ready for public testing.

interesting that the New DTA will also work in Chrome.

Not all that interesting. Part of the web extension push was chrome-parity and to allow chrome extension writers to more easily target Firefox. Write once, deploy everywhere.

Are you serious????

And ok tell me replacements for these addons/plugins:


wow I use some of those too..
- CTR (Classic Theme Restorer), NO yet replacements yet, that I know of!
- TMP (Tab Mix Plus), NO yet replacements yet, that I know of!
- MAF (Mozilla Archive Format), NO yet replacements yet, that I know of!

- DMT (Download Manager Tweak)(What I use), --> some one on the forums mentioned a replacement,
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/elite-download-manager/
its still young though so not many features..

etc...


Replace AdBlock PLUS with
uBlock Origin's current version (v1.14.10) is Web Ext. moving forward..
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

Also I use for YouTube extraction...
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easy-youtube-video-download/


And that is all I can say at this point...

yes you are correct.
This:

doesn't support youtube 1080p and more download so it's useless.

If you need tabs at the bottom of the browser window (basically, right above the Windows taskbar) then .css won't help, unfortunately. Actually, it will - see page 42. Tabs below the bookmarks toolbar are also possible.

Many youtube downloaders don't support 1080p because youtube separates the audio and video streams into two distinct files. That means you need to manually merge video and audio into a single file using video converter.
