How to download Flash Games from game sites

The are loads of websites that provide flash games and animations.
How about downloading a few of them? And that too using only your browser. Oh yes! Firefox can be used to easily download flash games and animations from your favourite websites.
If you don't have Firefox, scroll to the bottom of this page to download it.

How to download games with Firefox?

1. Open the webpage containing the flash game in Firefox.

2. In Firefox, go to Tools >> PageInfo. In the PageInfo box select the Media tab.

3. Here you'll find all the media files associated with the web page. Now look for files with the type 'Embed' and 'application/x-shockwave-flash' values.
It would be great if you get a file with the .swf extension. The .swf file is the one that contains the game.
Also, if the cache source value is Disk cache, then the file is already present in your computer.

Now use the 'Save As' button to save the file to you computer.

That's all you have to do!
