    Is there a way to add file extensions supported by safari for downloading? Every time I try to DL a .7z file safari opens it as a text file. I could get around this using wget... but there must be a more elegant way of doing this...

    Any ideas?

    Have you set the Finder to open all .7z documents with your extractor (EZ 7z or whatever you use)?

    It would seem that Safari is "recognising" it as a text file, so presumably you also have Open "safe" files after dowloading checked?
