Windows 7: Download Helper for IE9

Download Helper for IE9

Foxfire has an addon called "Download Helper" that allows videos and images to be downloaded easily.

Is there an addon for IE 9 that will do the same. I googled and found "Download Helper" for IE, but it said only for IE7 and IE8.

Has anyone used something like this for IE ??

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.

FYI - Re 1E9 Download Helper/Manager.
Were you aware of this?

Changes from previous versions

*User Interface


Internet Explorer 9 includes significant alterations to its user interface when compared with previous versions. \These include:

* Pinned Sites:Integrates with the Windows 7 taskbar to make web site experience more like an application where users may "pin" a site and then return to it later like a shortcut. In the release candidate, users can pin a site and add more homepages to that site (e.g. pin Facebook and add Twitter as another homepage to that pinned site, so it would become a social program)

* Security-enabled Download Manager: Manages file transfers and can pause and resume downloads and informs if a file may be malicious

* Enhanced Tabs and Tab Page: the new tab page can show most visited sites, and tabs are shown next to the address bar (there is an option to have a separate row, like in Internet Explorer 8) with the feature of closing an inactive tab.

* Add-on Performance Advisor: Shows which third-party add-ons may be slowing down browser performance and then allows the option to disable or remove them

* Compact user interface.

Internet Explorer 9 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thanks for in the info JMH.

I was just looking for the Download Helper if it was available. I have no need for a Download Manager. I have cable and have found in the past that it actually is more of a hinderance than a help.
