Firefox: DownThemAll, your favorite download manager for Firefox, has just officially updated to 2.0, bringing a host of new features as well as support for the soon-to-be-released Firefox 4.

If you’ve been rocking the Firefox 4 betas for awhile, you’ve probably been missing the download-supercharging powers or DownThemAll, but no more. We took a look at the 2.0 beta a while ago, but now that version is complete, bringing with it speed limits, mirror management, private browsing support, Flash and HTML5 video grabbing, and much more.

Of course, it still has all our favorite old features, too, like being able to download every image, MP3, or other file from a page as well as increasing your download speed by splitting up files. Whether you’re a longtime user of DownThemAll or not, this is one to check out, no matter which version of Firefox you’re currently using.

DownThemAll is a free download, works wherever Firefox does.
