Haven't used Opera for many years, but I still hear good things...

If you are mass-downloading (as the above seems to imply), be sure to use
wget, which is a grabber.


It is rather quick and innate after a little bit of practice. Just a simple
copy and paste of the 'template' command, then pasting the URL at the end.
Getting the "hang of it" pays off in my opinion. FlashGot is mentioned in
the page above, but it is YAE (Yet Another Extension...), which clutters
the context menus *sigh*.
