Looking for new browser

hey all this might sound strange but i have used the Safari browser on PC (even though its designed for apple) for the last 4years, i love this browser but they are stopping support for it in 2014 on windows. So now i am looking for a new browser.

I need my browser to be able to save images with 2 clicks. Example when i see a picture i like i right click and the option to drop straight into folder. Without anything else popping up or asking me anything. I can check back later and all images are there.

I cant seem to find a brower that does that. Any ideas?

There appear to be extensions in Firefox that would allow something like that...

Search for "one click save" or "two click save"

Is it really that painfull to right click, click save as, and then save?

Yes becuse with save us it asks you to name file, sometimes when downloading pictures from the same site names are the same and you need to keep renaming.

I save 87000pics a month

Bitcoins to me still seem a bit too dodgy to be used as a proper currency, especially one to be paid a "wage" in.

One day the $1200 is 2 bitcoins the next week it is 100 coins, then the next week its back to 2, so they in essence paid you 50x$1200 the week before?

Just because it isn't supported it doesn't mean it will stop working. Or have Apple built a kill switch into it?

Haha yeah they do with their own Imacs. No what will happen is websites wont support it. Example Youtube says it wont work, Yahoo mail says next month, Hotmail, liveleak. They all give me a message. So i went to wikipedia and it says they will stop supporting it.

That means youtube videos wont work properly, my google maps dont work the page keeps refreshing etc.


In 4 years i have been using it i have never had any spam or hackers etc. Its a browser hackers are not interested in. Now i have no other choice but to go with mainstream browsers which are dangerous. Damn

What about chrome? You can open you image folder in the background and just drag and drop any images you want.

I just checked this in Firefox on Win7.

Work just fine:

Left click on image, drag and drop into folder on desktop.

Job done.

wont that mean i have to minimize or move away quickly from the browsing section?

I cant afford a 3 sec delay, safari had no delay when i right clicked the folders name is there. So i right click then just click save in photo folder. If my file is same name it renames it photo1(1) without me seeing anything until i review later.

Try chrome with an extension. You may not find something exactly to your liking but similar. There is an extension which creates a download icon on all pictures and vidoes etc. on a site your on. Instant download when clicked. Havent used it for years so cant remember the name

or Firefox will do the trick too. Quite a few at work who loved Chrome have started going off it lately. Never been a fan - ultimately both will likely do what you want, and there's probably a way to use IE should you desire. It'll come down to which browser you prefer to use.
