Ever wanted to save that classy video from Facebook but the pain of downloading and installing a software has stopped you from downloading that video? There are many services and apps available which can help you in downloading videos from Facebook. But if you don’t want to use any third-party tool or service to download videos then you can simply use our very own Internet Explorer ;).
Open IE, go to Tools / Internet Options, Click on Delete, check Delete Temporary Internet Files and Delete.
Now open the Facebook page of the video you want to download and wait till it buffers completely.
Return to Tools, Internet Options, Settings (under Browsing History area) and click on “View Files”. This will open a folder on your computer where you will find the video file, just sort them by size and you’re done.
In most cases the videos are of larger size than the rest of the files and should have icon of your default media player. Simply copy this file and store it somewhere else and you are done.
If you are using Google Chrome then you can try ChromeCacheView to see cached files on your drive.
If you are one of the hardcore Google Chrome fan and you are very much used to it then you will definitely want to carry it with you wherever you go. Having a portable browser can make your life a lot easier. You can have your favorite bookmarks, your saved passwords and everything else with you at any point of time. You’ll only need to plug in your pen drive and start the browser.
All you have to do is download the compressed file from the link given below and extract it in your removable device. Then go to the folder named PortableGoogleChrome and run the ChromeLoader file to get started. No installation is required so you can use it on computers with limited rights as well.
The browser is having all the features which you get on your regular google chrome but you might see some minor difference in performance which is pretty much acceptable as you are running it from a portable device instead of your hdd. If at any time you feel like uninstalling it then just simply delete the folder and you are done.
You can download the latest version of portable Google Chrome from the link given below and if you want to update your portable browser you can simply go to the same site and download the newer version again.
Many of you might not be aware of this but you can use your favorite web browser Google Chrome as a free PDF viewer. No need to install any additional softwares just to read a PDF document 🙂 .
