      "If you use YouTube a lot you're definitely going to need a method to download videos and Easy Youtube Video Downloader is one of the best web browser extensions available to do it. I've used it with both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox to download videos off YouTube and I've never had an issue with it. It is easy to use and allows you to save all of your favorite videos in crystal clear high definition. My favorite aspect of this add-on is the fact that it creates an easy to find "Download" button on every single YouTube video. Downloading videos off YouTube cannot get any simpler than this!"

      "This is a good YouTube video downloader if... you are only using Mozilla Firefox. I'd recommend it if you are one of those many people who prefer Mozilla than any other web browsers, If you don't use Mozilla, then there are many plugins or apps out there that can download videos from YouTube."

      "Ever watched a YouTube video and wanted to save it? If so, then you need a downloader. I have tried various ones with various results - some good, others not so much. The lastest I've tried is iTube Studio downloader. I'm very pleased with its ease of use and overall downloading capabilities. The bonus that this downloader has that some others don't is that it actually works with other sites, so you don't have to mess with different programs for each one! It really is a great downloader you should check out if you're looking for a good one among many out there."

      "Not happy with this product. Yeah, it claims to be able to download videos from all kinds of places but I'm constantly not able to download the things I want. The program tries to do to much, your system will get bogged down unless it's the latest and greatest. You're better off using something else to download with and a separate converter."
