Launched Synology Download Assistant website

I decided to bring the synology download assistant chrome plugin to the next level.

Beginning with the launch of synologydownloadassistant.com

i hope to bring a whole host of new features through community help.


Synology Download Assistant

I recenlty bought a new Synology DS410 Network Attached storage device.
What a great product, i banged 4 2tb hard drives into it!

It has a download manager, that can handle torrents, emule links etc. but rather than browsing to this webpage on the machine i decided to create a google chrome extension that adds downloads directly to it from your browser.
