    This is a Safari related question

    Im running Safari on Windows Vista. Ive a always been a firefox user, but I disliked its latests version, so I switched to Safari on Windows.

    One thing I love about firefox is the donwload helper extension, wich downloads any video from the web. Not only youtube, but any video!

    Is there something similar for Safari?

    you can downloads videos with safari by starting the video in safari...go up to windows on the menu bar...then activity and look for either the largest file on the list or most of the time it is still downloading...

    hold down the option key and double click on it and it will download it.

    More and more frequently I'm finding that that method just opens the video in a dedicated tab, especially HD videos
