    Now I am only 13 and this is only a AppleScript app and its one of my very first so its not the most advanced app ever but I think its cool and useful (I made this last week and I have used a lot since) so check it out and I hope you enjoy!

    Please feedback on features I can add etc.

    Sweet work PowerFullMac. :D I'd like to throw an idea your way. It's possible to download the youtube videos in the HQ MP4 format also by somehow appending "&fmt=18" to the URL. HERE is and idea what I mean. I've been using that bookmarklet in Safari and Firefox to download the MP4 versions. If your interested you might try incorporating that ability into your app. Your 13 and I'm 46 and your still far more skilled on Macs than I (switched to a Mac from WinXP last summer).

    it would be pretty useful if you could somehow turn this into a widget.:D

    If you make it very clean (a bit like the dictionary widget, but for URLs) then you can have a part of my dashboard!
