Have you ever wanted to get your hands on the latest game, only to find that the Android Market thought it wasn't compatible with your phone?
Maybe you don't have a Tegra 2 device, but youre're pretty sure an Adreno 220 could handle it still.
Have a Kindle Fire and want access to more than just the Amazon AppStore?
Until now you've been stuck, but a new Chrome extension called APK Downloader will allow you to download an apk file from the Android Market directly to your desktop rather than to your device.
You'll need the latest version of Chrome with SSL error notifications disabled, then you supply your device ID, email address and password (all stored locally on your computer to grab the Android Market cookie).
From there you pick the app you want and you'll have the apk file on your computer, allowing you to sideload it onto any of your Android devices! It is a quite a handy little tool, but we'll be interested to see if anything is done to block this circumvention of the device rules. - text by Brian K @ phonearena

- Close Chrome and re-open it with the modified shortcut, then open the APK Downloader options page. If there is no warning box, then you successfully disabled SSL error warnings.
- Enter your email, password, and device ID
That's it. You can now start using APK Downloader.
**After logging in, you can navigate to any Android Market App page, and click the APK Downloader icon in the Address bar to download the .apk to your desktop!
Why do I have to enter my email, password and device ID? Does it store or send my password to another place?
The extension only stores email, device id and Android Market cookie in Chrome local storage, on your computer. To be able to get Android Market cookie, it needs your email and password to login at https://www.google.com/accounts/ClientLogin . After it's done, password is not stored, email is stored to display on Options page, Device ID and Cookie are stored for later requests. I do not send those information to another sites.
Please note that in the extension there are two js file is encoded to prevent abuse.Use of this extension is against the Market's ToS - proceed at your own risk. The clause it violates is: 3.3 You agree not to access (or attempt to access) the Market by any means other than through the interface that is provided by Google, unless you have been specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement with Google. You specifically agree not to access (or attempt to access) the Market through any automated means (including use of scripts, crawlers or similar technologies from time to time) and shall ensure that you comply with the instructions set out in any robots.txt file present on the Market website.
