Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

We recently wrote about an application that downloads photos from Flickr which you can use to backup your account and so on, but now I've discovered a Firefox addon which can download entire Facebook albums at once.
FacePAD: Facebook Photo Album Downloader will allow you to download your friends’ facebook albums en masse with the click of a button. To download photos from the an album, right-click (with your mouse) on the name/link of a Facebook album and click the Download Album with FacePAD option. If you did this properly, a JavaScript pop-up will appear telling you to wait a moment while it initiates the download process. Press OK and the photos will be downloaded to Firefox’s default download directory. If their are more than one page of photos, then more than one JavaScript pop-up will appear (one for each page, where 1 page = 20 photos).
