    On Firefox, I can Right-click, and select "View Background" for a quick way to save cool images that happen to be *behind* the page.


    I now use Safari, and am wondering if there is a way to do it simply.


    I can always search the page source, and find it, copy the link, enter it, and save the image. This just seems quite complicated, compared to the "right click, view" that Firefox has.


    Maybe an apple script to open the source code and find the link to the picture automatically? Leaving you to just copy the link, and get the picture?

    If you know the name of the file, you can open Window -> Activity Monitor, hold down option and double click to download the file.
