Easy conversion of multiple Safari .webloc to PC .url files
Authored by: UberFu on Aug 12, '04 03:07:19PM

I have 20 years of Mac / PC experience and very limited exposure to unix [except in the lsat few years with OS X] - so I feel like a school kid still sometimes with the unix speak_

But I suppose I'm confused by this thread_ I guess all that info would work if you're actually physically moving the pulled down URLs [that came from SAFARI and file-sharing them over to a PC box with a some acrid flavor of windoze or maybe even going to a different cut of unix or linux_ Then it seems all of that stuff would apply - right ?

But if you're staying in platform and merely using a different browser other than SAFARI - IE - OPERA - a variation of Mozilla and so on - all I ever do is either open up the browser and drag the .webloc file directly into an open window and it loads or if I have several [which is most times the case] then I'll drop them into a dedicated folder as I'm tracking along - then when I'm ready to go back thru them I select all - and change the default application for opening them from SAFARI to what ever browser I'm in the mood to use at the time_

Unless there's something I'm missing from reading thru this thread_
