scribd

This time I will share how to download from scribd in a new way. As we know, the trick that was previously on this page http://q-tutorials.blogspot.com/2012/01/how-to-download-from-scribd.html is no longer can be used.
For a new trick is actually not much different from the previous trick, we only need to replace our browser user-agent. 
Ok just how to download from scribd a whole new way.



For Firefox users:
1. First download user agent switcher add on here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/
2. After you downloaded and installed, follow these steps:
 - Press tools>Default user agent > user agent switcher> options.

 - Then select the Download list of user agents to import...

 - Then go to the following address http://techpatterns.com/forums/about304.html, and then select Download via File Save As Dialogue.

 - And then save the file and select OK
 - You should do next is to import the file list before the user agent.
3. Now change your browser's user agent to user agent of the android.
 Tools> default user agent> mobile devices> OS> Android> Android 0.5 - safari 419

4. Please download from Scribd with a format like this http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/ [id]
Example: http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/15647791

For Chrome users:
1. downloads user-agent switcher for chrome on chrome web store
2. Download and install it to complete.
3. Now you have to do the same as in Firefox users, that is, change your browser's user agent to user agent of the android.


4. Please download from Scribd with a format like this http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/ [id]
Example: http://www.scribd.com/mobile/documents/15647791

For opera users:
Sorry I did not like using opera browser, so my computer is not installed that browser, sorry.

Hopefully how to download from scribd in a new way could be useful for you all, god bless you all.
sorry for my bad english, I am from indonesia :)

  13. This used to work because it was the way for Scribd to display on mobile devices. It no longer works because it no longer directly puts the pdf to mobile devices. Well, at least not mine anyway.

    Guess the only way to keep something like this going is to not list it on a site that can be found by google search.

    Thank you very much.

  71. Thanks a million times! You save my life! I really needed the presentation slide for my presentation tomorrow! :)

    I used the firefox addon and changed my user-agent to android 4.0.4 - Opera 12.00

    It really works!

    Then, I tried the same thing on chrome and changed my user-agent to Android 4.1 - Nexus 7. It works like a charm!!

    Thank you so much anyway. :)
