Shared Cookie Storage

Since version 2.2, Progressive Downloader is capable to use cookies of the browser the application is integrated with.

Multi-browser Integration

If you ever want to integrate Progressive Downloader with two or more of your browsers you need to do the following. For example, you have Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Google Chrome. Start with Mozilla Firefox and then go back to the Interceptor's preferences window to click Delete. Don't be afraid, you will loose nothing. After your click the Delete button turns to the Install button. Click it and go through the integration process again with Apple Safari. Switch back to the preferences window and click Delete once more to finish the whole thing up with Google Chrome.

The trick is that you need always start with the Mozilla browsers before switch to all the rest.

Keep in mind that Progressive Downloader will use the cookie storage of the last browser you integrated with.
