What’s new in alpha 3?
- Editing rules now works as expected. Saving and corrections happen as soon as you unfocus the rule you just edited
- If the necessary HTML5 support is available, Download Control will use Sexy Dialog instead of standard alerts
- There’s a new context menu entry
Why not use “Save linked content as…”?
Because Download Control won’t ask you where to save the file, but just downloads it
(and because there’s more entries to come. Stay tuned 😉 )
I’ll eventually implement a setting to switch it off if you feel bothered by it
- omnibox integration
context menu is great, but what if you want to download sth. that’s not linked? Missing the download field of Opera 12?
I got you covered 😉
Just type “download” followed by the file you want to download into address bar.
You will see that the address bar icon turns into Download Control’s icon as soon as you do so.
Just press enter and you’re all set 🙂
(The keyword is adjustable in opera:settings -> Manage Search Engines…)
Sounds cool? Test it!
Just as previous builds: it’s an alpha version, so it’s not feature complete yet. Hence let me know what you’d like to see, what needs to be improved etc. (Some cheering is appreciated, too) 😉
