I thought this would be just what I was looking for, allowing me to download multiple files that are linked to on a page, but it is really only about half baked.
You can highlight multiple links to be saved, but then you are presented with a sequence of save dialogs - one for each and every link! Plus you have to enter a unique filename for each one - an identical default value appears in the dialog each time.
What I expected: The filenames that already exist on the server would be used, and you would be asked just once where to put the files. The point is to save time and reduce a repetitive operation to a single easy one, not to swap one tedious process for another one that is only slightly less tedious.
The way this works is hardly any better than doing it manually one at a time, at least for saving linked files or images to your hard drive, which is what I needed it for.
