Download login-protected files from the command line using curl, wget or aria2.

This addon will generate commands that emulate the request as though it was coming from your browser by sending the same cookies, user agent string and referrer. With this addon you can download email attachments, purchased software/media, source code from a private repository to a remote server without having to download the files locally first. If come across a website where cliget doesn't work, please open an issue providing details to help reproduce the problem.

Windows users: Enable the "Escape with double-quotes" option because Windows doesn't support single quotes. If you use cygwin, however, you don't need to enable this option.

Please be aware of potential security and privacy implications from cookies being exposed in the download command.
