Handy Firefox Addon To Bypass Rapidshare Ban And Automate Downloading

If your institution or ISP blocks access to Rapidshare, free Firefox addon "Download Rapidshare @ Office" can be the solution you are looking for, the handy little addon changes Rapidshare links (rs* to IP's fooling the proxy server into allowing the access, you just need to paste all your Rapidshare links into the addon toolbar and it takes care of everything else including managing the wait-times restrictions, the whole process is fully automatic and very easy, you can also use this to download multiple files as a Rapidshare free user easily.

Rapidshare Automated Downloading

The addon is intelligent enough to process multiple Rapidshare links one after another making user-interaction minimal, The addon is still in beta and a lot can be expected from it in future, addition of automatic Rapidshare link parsing inside a webpage similar to RSFind and removal of download prompt and option to specify default download folder can further enhance the utility and ease of this addon.

I tried to download with this addon, as a free RapidShare user, and it didn't work. For the free user, still needed to wait the 15 minutes time limit before I could download again.

well, this addon just emulates the whole RS download process for free users so tht u dont need to do it manually. thts why the 15 min wait time cant be overcome. hope u understand wht i'm saying.

...that at least the wait time indicator worked for me. Can't wait for the release version of this plugin. :)

thanks for ur nice review. release version will be uploaded soon, meanwhile check the latest version.

many thanks.
