5/5 stars

Safari with a download button

I've been using this program for like a year and it works as advertised. The people that can't get this to work are probably using it wrong. That, or they are trying to download from a website that conflicts with this program's "download the target of the next link clicked" mode of operation.

4/5 stars

Good for downloads

This browser does in fact work, and I have downloaded numerous files to date. My only suggestion is that if I have downloaded music and I play it, I would like to use multitasking so I can listen to the files while in other apps.

2/5 stars

Sounded great.

Looked nice, good initial presentation, but it simply did not let me download a file I tried linking to multiple ways.
