A script to close Safari's Downloads window
Authored by: cclifton on Jul 16, '04 07:02:55PM

That's a clever use of the isDocument property to avoid closing a browser window named "Downloads".

But I don't see how the fact that you "rarely download anything that takes more than 5 minutes" really helps alleviate the risk of closing the Download window in the middle of a download. If your Download window is being closed every 5 minutes---for the sake of discussion, say at 1:00, 1:05, 1:10, etc.---then what is to keep a 2 minute download started at 1:04 from being interupted?

I believe that closing the "Downloads" winddow interrupts any download, in fact will not even clear those already fiinish. You can close and re-open the download windows at any time during a download without affecting the download itself, just the display of the progress is not presented.

Maybe I missundertood? (the problem with closing the window while it is downloading)
