Chapter 11: Downloading and Saving Files


Overview

The Internet is one of the most impressive engineering feats in human history, but it's also the largest wasteland ever created. Scattered carelessly across space and time, the Internet epitomizes mankind's tendency toward clutter. It is the collective closet of billions of people worldwide, and it's a mess. Just put those shoes anywhere.

But if that's the Internet's curse, that's also its charm. Because unlike your own closets, the mess that is the Internet is Someone Else's Problem. You fire up your browser and take what you need, and at the end of the day, you just shut it down.

It's only after you download stuff from the Internet to your computer that the clutter becomes your problem, and unfortunately, most browsers do little to temper it. Even the most casual downloaders soon find themselves over-whelmed with scattered files. The Firefox Download Manager is designed to help you organize and open the files you download so you don't have to spend your time searching for them. In other words, you can rest easy: Even your own clutter is now someone else's problem.
