Download multiple files with Safari's Activity window
Authored by: ViViDboarder on Mar 01, '10 07:18:46AM
A couple tips similar to this...

I've found jDownloader to be great for this kind of task. If you have a lot of links that you want to download and have jDownloader open it can catch links from the clipboard and start on them right away. So you just take all the links and select them and hit Copy and then it's done!

It works really well with part.rar files on sites like Rapidshare as it supports authentication and it even does the extraction for you.

Another little tip I've used (but now that I know about that Safari window it may not be necessary. Also I didn't know you could paste links into the Downloads window) is a bookmarklet I made. Sometimes you get a video that opens up into the browser instead of downloading or an audio clip even. This bookmarklet will open up a small window with a link to the file you're viewing. So you can then Secondary click and Save As... Just thought I'd share.
javascript:myurl = location.href;dT30FfN=new%20Date();'','w'+dT30FfN.getTime(),'innerWidth=400,innerHeight=100,scrollbars,menubar');wdGs8c6.document.write('<a href="' + myurl + '">' + myurl + '</a>');void(wdGs8c6.document.close())
