SkipScreen will make it faster to get hold of direct download files. Avoid waiting times when downloading files with SkipScreen, a Firefox extension

8/10 (4 Votes)

Direct downloads, among their many advantages, stand out for the high speed at which files can be downloaded. Because they come directly from a server, you don't have to wait in long user queues. Unfortunately, when accessing the free services offered by these kinds of servers, the compulsory waiting times enforced can be a bit of a drag. Downloading SkipScreen can reduce these waiting periods.

Avoid the countdowns on direct download sites

SkipScreen detects the direct link and takes you to it avoiding the typical countdown screen that usually appears on these kinds of pages. The download starts immediately and a message appears to let you know that Firefox is helping you out with the download.


  • Avoid the long-winded download times on the main download sites such as, SendSpace, Mediafire or HotFile among many others.
  • Shows error messages.
  • Constant updates for the add-on.

If you often make use of direct downloads, get hold of SkipScreen and you will save a lot of time.

Requirements and additional information:
  • You need the Mozilla Firefox browser.
