When you are dealing with multiple downloads, it's easy to get confused and loose track of your files. Sure, there are lots of download managers out there, but sometimes you want something that's so discreet you barely even notice it. Is there a tool that will do the job?

Download Statusbar is a Firefox add-on, so is obviously very low-key. In fact, when you are not downloading, it is invisible, and when active, it is very, very discreet. Download Statusbar completely integrates into the standard Firefox download, so there is nothing to configure before you start to use it. When you download a file, a very small download indicator (the statusbar) will appear at the bottom of your screen. From here you can control the download, pausing and re-starting in one click, running the file once it downloads, copying the URL and visiting the source website.

The Download Statusbar display makes it very easy to see what files you are downloading and how close to completion they are. If you open the add-on's configuration options, you'll find that the display and download are completely customizable. There are also a series of hints available on the Download Statusbar website that make your downloading even quicker. Here at Softonic we do a lot of downloading so it is testament to just how useful Download Statusbar is that lots of us have it installed as our download manager. It is effective, low-maintenance and very simple, and if you are a frequent downloader, it's a must-have extension.

Download Statusbar - a must-have application for frequent downloaders.
