Most of you will already be familiar with IMDB, a great Internet resource that provides the details of almost every film ever made. The website is great to consult when you are looking up a particular film or actor, but what if you are trying to build your own movie database and want the details of the films on your own computer?
IMDB Ripper is a Firefox add-on that fulfils one specific purpose - to rip information from IMDB movie pages and save it and any images it contains as an .xml or .nfo file. IMDB Ripper grabs the information and arranges it in various categories, and then asks you where you'd like to save it and in what format. Once it is saved you can import it into whatever document you need.
IMDB Ripper actually has a good variety of configuration options for an add-on. You can chose exactly which movie tags you want it to import when it rips information from an IMDB page and specify what countries you want it to take into account when looking for release dates and alternative names the film might have been given in other territories. The IMDB Ripper category lists are long and detailed, and even the most die-hard movie fan is likely to get all the information he or she wants.
If you need IMDB information for your own records, IMDB Ripper is the tool to get it.
