Is it possible to begin downloads in a Chrome extension?

I am making a Chrome extension and was wondering if it would be possible to begin or queue file downloads?

    Chrome could really use some improved download management featurers. these features available in an add-on or extension to Chrome.

    go to chrome and type chrome://downloads, see if this will help you will see pause and cancel while downloading a file, while canceled there is Retry download and Rermove from liste. The resuming (especially from a lost connection) is shaky. It may work for you occasionally, so you will need a good download manager like internet download manager...

    Free Download Manager

    Step 1: In Free download manager, go to the Options / Setting tab.

    Step 2: Click on monitoring under “Downloads” section and check the boxe for Google Chrome

    Step 3: Restart the Google Chrome browser.
