Clicking and waiting is just as annoying on search site as it is on those sites themselves. In preparing the latest version, our allstar developer was looking up some documentation on FilesTube and it irritated him.
So he wrote the latest addition to our growing family of skippers, and thanks to our new self-hosted version it’s coming to you in record time!
Over the summer we worked with the author of the infamous Greasemonkey script to make Megaupload anti-CAPTCHA technology a part of Skipscreen. That feature is now in the latest release of Skipscreen, which you can download here.
This feature is awesome in two ways.
- You never have to enter those annoying four letters ever again
- Megaupload downloads now require zero intervention. Just open the tab and it works. We even have automatic reloads.
The feature was too-hot-to-handle for Mozilla’s addon directory, so we backed off. But now we’re self-hosting our own version, in part to make it easier to do rapid updates for our arms race with Mediafire. So we figured it was only right to bring back the anti-captcha!
Note: you have to get the self-hosted version (download it from Skipscreen.com not from AMO) to get the anti-CAPTCHA code.
It was a long wait, but the latest SkipScreen release just got approved in the Mozilla Addons queue! It features new stuff like:
- Storage.to support
- 4shared support
- Hotfile support fixed (after website changes)
- Rapidshare improvements (a handler for the “no slots available” error that will retry after the given wait time)
- And more!
We are so psyched to finally get this out the door. The one drawback is that the Mediafire fix in the current beta didn’t make it in there. If you use Mediafire a lot, get the latest version of Skipscreen to avoid annoying and redundant clicks!
To better keep up with future Mediafire changes, we’ll soon be offering our own self-hosted version of Skipscreen that will have more frequent updates and a very special feature that got rejected by AMO over the summer (no joke!).
