A Few Favelets
Every so often I’ll receive an email with a link to a file that my browser of choice doesn’t know what to do with. Last weekend I received just such an email. I clicked on the link for a Flash .fla and Safari tried to read it as text. No dice. Since the link was in an email and not the browser I couldn’t option-click or right-click to save the file to disk.
Normally, I crack open BBEdit and quickly code myself a link, preview in the browser and download the file. Time unnecessarily spent. So I finally whipped up a nifty little favelet that prompts you for the file’s url and then creates the link for you. The second scours the current page and creates a list to all embedded or linked media. The third shows the browsers internal view of the document’s source and even reflects changes made by scripting.
These favelets have been tested in Safari and Firefox Mac (feel free to add to that list in the comments below) and are provided strictly on an as is basis. Enjoy:
