Downloading embedded videos or Songs from a web page or a streaming site could be tricky given the encryption and security the sites have.

But today in this post I will give you the list of best of the Chrome Extension Plugins to download the content from a website easily. The chrome browser extensions help as download manager and will ease your task of downloading the files from the page.
