Quickly save anything from the web to Koofr in Vivaldi browser

Save pictures, text, files and more while you browse with one simple click. Use the Save to Koofr extension for Google Chrome, even while using the Vivaldi browser.

Sometimes you need to save a bunch of images, text, or other content from the internet - for a school or work project, or perhaps just a moodboard to get your creative juices flowing. Try using our Save to Koofr browser extension to streamline your process and keep your files (and your computer's Downloads folder) a little bit more organised and tidy. And while we initially developed it for Google Chrome, we recently tried it out using Vivaldi and are happy to report that yes, Save to Koofr also works with it!

What is Vivaldi?

Vivaldi is a privacy-oriented, cross-platform web browser that offers a high level of customizability and unique features. It is developed by Vivaldi Technologies, a company co-founded by a former CEO of Opera Software (of Opera web browser fame). Vivaldi is Chromium-based and also features a built-in email client and calendar. Users praise it for its unique interface and advanced features like multilevel tab stacking and split-screen tab viewing. It comes with an ad blocker and tracking protection, and like Koofr, does not track its users, either. Nice!

How does Save to Koofr work?

The Save to Koofr extension offers several saving options for different types of files. Here's how you can save the following files:

Image and video files

Right-click and select Save this to Koofr to save the selected image or video. The file will be uploaded to Koofr in the background, so you can continue to browse during this time.

You can use Save screenshot to Koofr to make a screenshot of the page that is currently open in your browser and save it to Koofr in JPEG format.

You can also save the largest image or video on the currently open page by selecting the Save the largest image to Koofr option.

Right-clicking on an image displays the context menu featuring the Save to Koofr options that are available with the selection.

Text selection

With the Save selected to Koofr option, you can save a part of a text from a webpage to a new text file (.txt) in your Koofr. The new file will contain the saved text as well as the source page URL and will be named after the webpage title. You can use this method as a simple and quick way to collect information from various sources when doing research for a school or work project.

Select text and use Save to Koofr to save it for later along with its URL source.

Link to a file

If you use the Save to Koofr option on a link pointing to a file (for example, a PDF or Office-compatible document), the target file will be automatically saved to your Koofr account. Using this method on a link to a webpage will save that webpage (in .html form) to your Koofr.

Where are my saved files located?

Everything you save using the Save to Koofr extension will be saved in the Save to Koofr folder, which will be created automatically the first time you save something with the extension. Even if you are using several different compatible browsers in addition to Vivaldi, like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera or Brave, any files you save from them will go into the same folder, as long as you are logged in to the same Koofr account in each browser.
