FastestTube is an application that helps you download video files from YouTube. This add-on is compatible with most popular browsers, such as Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Using this small application is very easy. Once the utility is installed on your computer, you just access YouTube, choose the video you want to save, and press the Download button positioned under the video player. The next step is to select the desired video quality from the drop-down menu. Afterwards, you simply choose whether to save the file to local disk, or to open it automatically with your personal media player. Both ways, you get yourself with a copy of the YouTube video saved to your computer in MP4 or FLV formats.

What's more, you are enabled to download HD videos. In addition, the files are saved without the popup ads that may appear when viewing the clips online.

All in all, this is a small add-on for downloading YouTube videos. Once the media files are saved to your machine, you can view them without the annoying frameworks that could be caused by a bad Internet connection.
