NOTE: (AS OF 11/05/2015)
4chan html structure has changed, full images are downloaded as well as the thumbnail. Fix coming shortly (after my exams are over) to stop the thumbnails from downloading.

This is the first release of my 4chan image downloader. This downloader packs loads of great features such as the search ability. Check the features section and be sure to let me know if you want a feature added.

Coming Soon:
