This version downloads flash videos from more web sites (for IE 6- 9, Firefox 3.5- 9), support for import of uTorrent and Orbit downloader downloads is added.

Google Chrome  Monitoring in FDM

Flash Video monitoring for Google Chrome is added (you still need to enable it in Flash Video section in FDM settings) which doesn’t seem working, also remember “Download it” button only appears for flash videos loaded in IE and Firefox browsers only.
