Work with the Safari 1.2 downloads window
Authored by: stridey on Feb 09, '04 11:18:04AM

Alright. This probably isn't the best place to ask this, but I'm going to anyway. Something I still can't figure out how to do in Safari, and sometimes switch to IE (yikes!) to accomplish, is downloading the URL in the address bar. Is there an easy fast way to tell Safari "just download this, will you?" It's probably staring me in the face...

Click in the address bar, hold option, hit return.

... is downloading the URL in the address bar

wouldn't it be easier just to pop over to the terminal and use wget?

Actually, now in Safari v125, it works to select what's in the adress field and just drag and drop it on the downloads window. I've been waiting for that one :-)
