4Chan Thread Downloader
4chan is one of the most popular bulletin boards on the Internet that is used for discussions but also photo and image posting. The 4Chan Downloader was designed by its developer to allow users to download specific 4Chan threads -to be more specific photos and images posted in those threads - to the local computer system.
This is the main difference to 4Chan Grabber which we reviewed earlier this year which allowed users to download all photos and images of a selected 4Chan forum to the computer system. The 4Chan Downloader is therefor for users who do not want to download all photos or images from a forum but only selected ones from threads that they specify.
The downloader is ready for use after a quick installation. It consists of five interactive interface elements. The two forms can be used to paste the url of the 4Chan thread and to specify the download location on the local computer. The other three are buttons that can start the download, perform a check or open the folder containing the images.
The program will automatically create a folder based on the thread number at 4Chan to avoid ending up with a massive amount of unsorted photos and pictures if multiple threads are downloaded. 4Chan Downloader should be compatible with most versions of the Windows operating system. It can be downloaded at the developer's website.
Update: 4Chan Thread Downloader has been renamed to 4chan Watcher. Check out the new 4chan Downloader review here.
Update 2: The 4Chan Thead Downloader is no longer available. We suggest you take a look at the actively maintained 4Chan Downloader instead, a free program for Windows that you can download from Sourceforge. It works semi-automatically. All you need is a 4Chan forum url that you paste into the program. A click on start downloads all images and you configure the program to automatically scan the thread for new photos and images.Advertisement
