FeaturesSABConnect Software
Google Chrome Extension
But Functional

SABconnect++ is a fork of the now unmaintained Chrome extension

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.

You can install SABconnect++ by visiting their chrome web store page. However, it is important to note that nobody is maintaining the codebase of this program right now. Those who would need a fix will need to submit a pull request via their github page to request for the required changes. Based on the information we’ve gathered from their chrome store and github page, the most recent version 0.6.33 was released in September of 2021. Minor fixes has been done since our last review on this application.

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 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.
