Downloads Router

Downloads Router is an extension for Chromium and Google Chrome that allows the user to establish routing rules, directing downloads to folders based on filetype, filename, or source domain.


0.8.1 (September 30, 2014)

  • Referrer downloads now use URL as fallback if no referrer information is provided
  • Now correctly marks the mime-type of torrent files sent as octet-streams, permitting MIME routing from sources such as torcache
