oGet Integrates Popular Download Managers Into Opera
Windows with Opera only: oGet improves on the limited and often non-existent integration between the Opera browser and third-party download managers, acting as a link between them. After installing oGet, you’ll be asked to select which download manager you would like oGet to pass your download requests to. The plug-in doesn’t actually install the download managers, so you’ll need to grab it on your own—check out the Hive Five for best download managers if you need some help picking one out. oGet supports over 25 managers including GetRight, FlashGet and LeechGet, among others. Depending on the content you click on, you’re offered the following options in your right-click context menu: download, download all, and download selection for downloading the contents of a link, an entire page, and a selection of files or links, respectively. oGet is free and works with Opera 9.0 and higher.


  • I’ve been using oGet for about a year now (with GigaGet as download manager), very handy when you want to queue up a large number of files to download.

    I did have a problem with Opera 9.5, where oGet would not launch my download manager. Turns out it was due to having a space in the path for Opera’s temporary files (which under XP defaults to something like “C:\Documents and Settings\etc…”, almost guaranteeing problems). Easily fixed, you just go to Opera’s opera:config page, and change your temporary files folder to one without any spaces!
