How you can use Your Browser To

Download YouTube videos

We all love watching online videos. But did u know you can download your favorite videos using browser plug-in?

People who use Internet Explorer can use IE download Helper. Get Version 3.3 of the software because the new 3.5 version puts a limit on the size of the video file for free users.


For Firefox, we suggest VIDEO DOWNLOADERHELPER (available on Firefox extensions page ).when you access a web page with embedded videos in it ,this extension processes the links from where the videos in it. This extension processes the links from where the videos can be downloaded in either FLV, MP4 and 3gp.

Formats in resolution of up to 1080p.

Chrome users can use YOUTUBE downloader. this works best as it creates a download button under the video and daily motion.

With TZ ,you don’t have to click on an image to view in its full size. Simply hover over a thumbnail to see in floating window .This not only save time, but also helps u keep your browsing session neat and tidy .by default, this extension works with over 15 websites including Face book, twitter and Imgur.



I f you have ever copied text from the internet and pasted it directly into a rich editor like MS WORD .you will know what a mess its formatting can create. Most users therefore prefer to paste into notepad before copying and pasting into an email compose window or ms word. Copy plain text strips away the troublesome formatting from web text and helps save some time.



Install this extension to turn YouTube into your personal radio station .It adds a tiny toolbar complete with forward, rewind pause and volume controls buttons –at bottom of the page from where u can search a song on the video service and stream it as an mp3 .But that’s not at all .If u want,u can even download the file in mp3 format.

Feedly  is also available for chrome.





isSpell: IE 10 has an inbuilt spell checker ,but if u re running version 8 or 9.,u should download iespell. This tool is a boon to those who compose emails and posts in their browser. Once installed ,spell check can be accessed in the contextual menu that pops up after right clicking. With iespell u can also highlight a word and look for its meaning on the Merriam Webster web site.




with iMacros you can record the actions that you perform on a web page to complete  a task. For example ,to access twitter y first type into the URL bar, hit enter the login using an id hit tab ,enter in your  password and hit enter again. With iMacro ,u can record these actions ,and subsequently log into Twitter by simply replaying the macro. You can use this tool to record as many macros you want.



We don’t usually recommend they use of toolbars, but this one adds several features to IE: It allows u to carry out an internet search without going to; automatically translates text whenever u encounter a web page in a foreign language; and if give it necessary permissions ,it also gives one click access to goggle services including google+;

IE plugins has to be installed on your pc before they can be used within browser.
