Bulk installing your WordPress plugins using WP Favs

Recently, in the WordPress Plugin Suggestions Facebook Group, I ran across a tool I had never seen before. It allows WordPress developers to make a bulk install of plugins to a new WordPress install. This is a great idea since we often use the same plugins every single time. Therefore, I decided to take a look at the tool and see for myself how it works. I was pleasantly surprised.
