The multiple-file download is a collection of extensions that use the new download attribute in HTML5 to offer multiple-file downloading. Simple as that.
This is not meant to be a "download accelerator," "download manager" or anything like that. It is meant to work within the browser using the browser's own download capabilities and features. It simply lets a user quickly choose and download the content that is marked as downloadable on the page. This should really be a built-in feature of browsers, since the download attribute is now somewhat standard and defined in HTML5.
