Organize your downloads automatically! Set custom download locations based on filetype, filename, or source domain.

Latest news: ☆ Torrent files downloaded as octet-streams now trigger application/x-bittorrent MIME routing rules ☆ Referrer routing now uses the source URL as a fallback, improving reliability Downloads Router is a tiny extension that helps you avoid cleaning the dreaded "Downloads" folder by automatically saving files in the right places. Downloads Router springs into action whenever you start downloading a file. It looks at the filename, filetype, or origin domain (source website) of the item, and matches this information against rules that you define on the extension's Options page. Should a matching rule exist, a "suggestion" is sent to the browser, indicating where it should save the file; this suggestion may however be overridden, as for instance when you use the "Save As..." feature. The Options page opens automatically after installing the extension, and may thereafter be reached from the chrome://extensions page.

Eg .CBZ is a zip file type "application/x-cbz" for comic books would always go to where zips "application/zip" where saved. The workaround for this is to just set for these filetypes the rules under Finen... Show more
