Use auto-moutning downloads folders in browsers

I do the same thing using Finder shortcuts. Double click on a shortcut to a network volume and as long as you have the correct credentials in your keychain, it will auto-mount when you double-click on it. I have a bunch of useful network shortcuts in my Favorites folder for this very purpose.

Would you explain exactly what you're doing here?

I cannot seem to make an alias to a network mount. I was able to create a .afploc file to a network mount (by using the TextEdit trick of putting the text "afp://machinename.local/username" and then dragging the text onto the Desktop). But when I double-click it, I'm still required to click "Connect" to complete the mount.

Thanks!

In my case, it's an alias to a Windows Share (actually, shared from my Linux file server). For a pure Unix (Linux, OS X) solution, NFS works as well.
