A new extension has been released for Opera 11 that helps users in downloading files from file-sharing sites such as Megaupload, Hotfile, Mediafire etc. A majority of these sites use download limits, lower speeds and wait-times to convince users into paying for these services by way of “Premium Accounts”.

Making lives easier

However, the Download Helper extension works in a way similar to JDownloader, only it’s integrated into the browser. It also supports Georgian file hosting websites. Here’s a full list of what it does:__STARTQUOTE__ – On Megaupload.com it will automatically start download after the time ends.
– On Hotfile.com it will popup window where you can type captcha and download link will appear without waiting.
– On Depositfiles.com it will automatically choose Free download and automatically start download without
waiting 60 seconds to download file.
– On 4Shared.com it will automatically start download after the time ends.
– On Mediafire.com it will automatically start download.__ENDQUOTE__While we’re not sure if this extension is any better than JDownloader which supports more websites, it definitely is a boon to have the function integrated into the browser, which will lower the CPU load.

Either way, if you’re a frequent user of these file-sharing websites, you can get the extension here. Make sure you’re on Opera 11 though, because the extension requires the latest version to be installed.
