RapidShare is one such highly popular reliable file hosting service, I have used it many times when ever I wanted to share files with friends. But when it comes to downloading it has some very strict rules that you cannot use download accelerators unless you have a premium paid RapidShare account, another annoying thing which comes across when you download files from RapidShare is the countdown timer.
Now you can remove the countdown timer from RapidShare by installing addon called RapidShare Download Helper for Google Chrome and Firefox, this addon will not actually remove the countdown timer but will automatically monitor the time limitations and will auto start the download once the timer is completed and download link is available.
It will perform the following two important things for your while downloading files from rapidshare, It will automate the download process for you:
– auto-detect countdowns
– auto-start downloads when countdowns are over
