A handy Firefox add-on worth having when you need to automatically find, collect, and save documents to your computer, while offering support for filters
OutWit Docs is a lightweight Firefox extension built specifically for helping you search on the Internet for different types of documents and save them on your computer.
The configuration panel is intuitive enough to be configured without having to go through installation steps or watch online tutorials.
The add-one makes the downloading process seem nothing but a piece of cake, as you only need to provide a valid URL, and it automatically scans the webpage and displays the results in the primary panel.
One of the best features included in this tool enables you to grab documents from the Internet via the Google search engine by simply typing in the word in a dedicated window.
The smart filtering system gives you the possibility to look for items with various file extensions (e.g. PDF, DOC, RTF, XLS, PPT, SWF). Plus, you are allowed to search for items that include a user-defined word.
What’s more, you are allowed to select the default saving directory, rename items, abort the search process, reload the current webpage, as well as order documents by name, size, type, date, or URL.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to enable the automatic saving mode, look for items in the bookmark folder, as well as specify the number of webpages to explore, automatically explore the whole series of webpages or the links, or load data from the homepage.
Last but not least, you can view the list of results for each performed search operation and move documents to the Catch panel for downloading them later.
All things considered, OutWit Docs proves to be a reliable Firefox extension that comprises a handy set of parameters for helping you grab documents from the Internet.
