SABConnect++: Instant SABnzbd Access For Chrome Users

October 20, 2011

More and more I find that people are using the Chrome web browser. And this is true also for those that access Usenet through the internet portals using web browsers like Chrome and Firefox. And, as could only be expected with increasing popularity, there have been a couple of weak applications for various things Usenet oriented, but in the last few months there has been a boom of applications released surrounding SABnzbd, and here’s one of the better ones we have found, SABConnect++.

This is for the Google Chrome browser and has a similar function as SABDrop, but adds a few functions that many had wished were in SABDrop. For those that don’t know or remember, SABDrop is a Chrome Add-On that sends your nzb downloads to SABnzbd. Here is a short list of it’s main features:

  • Adds œSend To for SABnzbd on context menu.
  • Supports API Keys and User name/Passwords.
  • Supports categories for the links sent to SABnzbd.
  • Page action that will automatically scan web pages for NZB links.

As we said, SABConnect++ has all those features and a few more.

  • Connection Profiles.
  • A popup window that will not only show you the download speed, but let you control it.
  • Pause/Resume individual or all downloads.
  • Delete individual downloads from queue.
  • Notifications on your desktop of download completions.
  • Single click downloading from certain website. (See list below.)

Looking into the known issues, there is only one. It occurs in a very specific situation that many would not encounter anyways. There are website specific functions that will operate on the following websites:,,,,,,,, and For each of these sites there is a single button download.

This add-on has received a lot of praise from everyone who has tried it so fat, including us. We haven’t had opportunity to test it extensively yet, but we have beeen impressed with all we have seen so far. Compared to SABDrop, SABConnect++ is ten times the app, and worth it at double the cost, which is nothing…both apps are free.
