DownloadComment1.2.1

23 December 2007

Place d/l URL in archive Get Info window.

Overview

DownloadComment places the original URL of a downloaded file into the Finder Comments area of that file, allowing you to retrieve the data by using the "Get Info" command. This functionality was part of Netscape on OS 9 but is missing from Safari. DownloadComment brings it back.

What's new in DownloadComment

Version 1.2.1
  • Adds support for Safari 3 final release including Leopard support.

Am I the only one who DOESN'T see URLs automatically added to the Get Info window for Safari web archive files that I save, when I don't use DownloadComment? I haven't seen URLs in a Finder Get Info window for any Safari web archive files for as long as I can remember, including Safari 2 and 3. What am I missing?

Hmm, DC has mysteriously disappeared from the developer's site; currently only Movie Tools is listed on the Mac Freeware from Ecamm Network page.

DownloadComment is great because it also puts the download path in the file comment if you drag&drop some file (e.g. an image) into your finder windows or to the desktop! Therefore: Great little helper!

Yes!!!! Finally again and on on Leopard! This little pluggy is just a neat add-on. How often does somebody ask "Hey where's that desktop picture from" I I haven't any idea. Thanks! : )

This is already done automatically in Mac OS X 10.4 (maybe earlier) and Safari 2 !!! (see Get Info window: More Info section: "Where From") Mac Pro Tip: http://www.apple.com/pro/tips/downloadsource.html

This thing is so valuable and when you end up with a bad download, you can find out where it came from. I love this thing!

Thanks for this, Ecamm, I had almost forgotten about that old OS 9 feature.

Pleasepleaseplease give us a FireFox version as well... It amazes me how 'modern browser' developers manage to turn a blind eye on features that have been around and useful since back in the middle of the 90s.

Oh my, I was looking for something like this for ages! Great! But, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work with Safari 1.3 (v312, 10.3.9) -- it claims to install successfully, but nothing shows up in the comment box of a saved html-document. Could this be fixed? Again, great functionality.

Sometimes you download some an image or whatever using download with, then you forget where you got it from... Well with this it will never happen again! Could have been built in. Great - Thanks
