This is a free toolbar both for Firefox and Internet Explorer, which comes with a lot of functions but the main of course is the video/audio downloading module. It works very easily – just navigate the Web as normal, and when you find a song to download, access the Record Audio Tool and click it to start recording. The big plus is that you may record any track wherever you hear it. The big minus is that the quality leaves much to be desired as the tool records all your PC’s sounds.

5). Mozilla addons

Firefox browser allows users to install different extensions to rip music online. The most popular are VideoDownload Helper, Easy YouTube Video Downloader, NetVideoHunter Video Downloader, and YouTube to Mp3. They all are very handy but for Firefox onlly. The developers of these addons are either small companies or just software enthusiasts, so the extensions are rarely updated and may not function for the supportd websites in case of any changes from their part. Still for an occasional use, that’s exactly what is needed.
