reviews and comparison of various Browser Plugins, Addons and Extensions that allow to download youtube videos directly from the browser without use of any online services or standalone software. This method is interesting, cause it (usually) allows one to simply click some special button or link next to video or audio on the page, thus downloading videos directly, without leaving the browser window. Sometimes this method may be better than others, since it allows browser extension to analyze the output for the page, thus making it possible to snip the source of the stream right out of the processed and heavily encoded page.. and again, this maybe also a multi platform way, since chrome and other browsers generally have versions for multiple platforms. Most Chrome extensions had to limit their functionality to avoid messing with youtube, since it’s part of google and chrome store is also google, so google can actually dictate its rules and enforce them, by stopping to offer offensive extensions. one of the offences there is allowing users download youtube videos.. so now anything installed via chrome official store of plugins will not handle youtube. Still some plugins like Savefrom.Net Plugin can be downloaded directly from their makers, thus retaining full functionality and working with youtube too.
