Have you ever been to a website with lots and lots of file links that are hosted on file hosting websites like Rapidshare, Hotfile or Megaupload?
Downloading multiple files from hosting companies that are linked on the page can be quite problematic and strenuous unless they are posted directly next to each other.
The file hosting management tool RSFind! Mod for the Firefox web browser offers a handy solution for users who regularly download files from file hosting services.
The main feature of the add-on is link identification. It supports dozens of different file hosters and displays all links pointing to those hosters in a browser overlay.
A click on the icon in the statusbar of the browser scans the page and spawns the link list afterwards.
Here it is then possible to select none, one or multiple links and either copy the link information to the clipboard or open them in separate tabs in the browser. The clipboard option is handy for users who work with tools such as JDownloader to download files from file hosting websites.
Extensive options are available to customize the functionality and process. The add-on fixes obfuscated links automatically and extracts links in links (for instance if an anonymizer is used in front of the actual link). Users can remove those searching options or add new options like searching for links in plain text as well.
It is furthermore possible to remove file hosting services so that their links will be ignored by the scan. Handy if you do not want to use a specific file hosting service or only want to use some (for instance if you have premium accounts at some).
RSFind! Mod is a handy add-on for users who regularly download files from file hosting websites.
Update: The Firefox add-on has not been updated since 2012. While it still works, many of the hosting companies that it supports are not available anymore. Rapidshare shut down in 2015 for example and Megaupload in 2013.
