First, is it possible with an Apple pro mouse to perform "right click" features? For instance on IE all I have to do to download a picture is click the mouse on the pic, drag it slightly to the right and then select "download image to disk" from the menu. But on Safari the menu doesn't appear. So how can I download individual pictures?

Also, is there any way to turn off the "history" feature on Safari as you can on IE?

Thanks for the help.

the "right click" feature is available in the friggin operating system!
to download pics in safari 73, hold down option and click once.
to get the menu, hold down ctrl and click once.

neither camino nor safari have implemented the click-and-hold menus of mozilla/netscape. i'm assuming that it's against the HIG, but so is a brushed metal browser and tabs that come down from the top. i'm not complaining about those features at all, but why not show a little love to us pro-mousers?

Appreciate the help. This should lead to more time on Safari!

um, he meant the ability to do it without using the keyboard. i miss this functionality a great deal, i don't know why apple hasn't implemented it... drag and drop sucks too, and they invented that one.

i just assume they're features to be added later---
