Internet Shortcuts on Safari/Firefox
I have been unsuccessful at creating internet shortcuts on Safari or Firefox. On XP the DeskCut extension is great, but on OS X I only get a long error. I have dragged shortcuts over the network and Safari can open them as .url files, but Firefox chokes.
Is there a hack in Safari or has anyone been able to get DeskCut to work?

If I want a shortcut for the current page, I drag the favicon in the address bar to the desktop. If I want a shortcut for a link that's embedded in the page, I drag the link to the desktop. Both processes create shortcut files in both Safari and FF, and the shortcut files generated by both Safari and FF work in the opposite browser. I also appear to be free to rename the files as I please without stopping them from working.
Is this close to what you want? Or does it have to have to be a context menu thing?

DeskCut lets you right-click any unactive spot on a page, and within the context menu you can send an internet shortcut to the desktop. When I used IE years ago, it always had it built into the file menu. I have been using these methods, but never knew you could drag and drop the url.
I'm a right-clickaholic, so menubars and drag and drops are not my first guess.
