Chrome Dev for Android adds download manager and page saver feature as part of its recent batch of updates. Google has integrated the option to download the active web pages right into the Chrome menu. The download manager in Chrome Dev app resembles the one already available in the desktop browser’s built-in download manager.
It’s already available for use if you’re on the latest version of the app. Click on the Menu icon and it opens to a selection of the latest downloads on the device just like the desktop version of the Chrome browser. Any page that is available as offline is listed so when opened. This is marked by the notification ‘viewing an offline copy of this page’ and the offline tag in the address bar. You can also view current and completed downloads by category like downloads, pages, videos and audio, images etc by tapping on the Download menu’s hamburger button. If you want to delete any pages you may no longer require, do so by long-tapping on it on the Downloads page.
A click on the menu also displays the Gigabytes downloads use on the device, the amount of free space, and options to filter downloads by type. You can also monitor and moderate downloads in the Download manager.
The Pages category in the Download manager lists all the web pages that you have downloaded for offline viewing. This is pretty much helpful when you are in a spot were the internet connection is not reliable. The Download manager displays individual web pages that you downloaded, so if there are multiple pages you may peruse when you’re offline, you’ll have to download them separately.
Try it out if you are on the latest version and let us know how you like it.
