Extension works fine and especially useful for placing in article links on hi-res images and huge documents. Support is also good - the bug was fixed rapidly.

Sometimes You Need just a simple list of files to be downloaded on Your Site.. Usually a preview of some Image or PDF files is opened which is not wanted with files of big size.
This is where Simple Download can be used perfectly to start the download dialog directly.

And they offer a quick support!
