    It probably is. Or you can just right click and click "Save As..." or you can press "Ctrl+S" which saves the webpage.

    =(
    thought stream inc

    but maybe its possible to idk, try to open those files one after another, resulting in autosave?
    i mean when i click a link the file usually instantly starts downloading... if its not a picture or a page, that is...

    ok another question then ^_^
    how do i save a picture rather then open it in a new tab? im sure it was possible somehow with links and stuff...

    well ok, i know pretty much nothing about making chrome extensions (only made several themes so far), but it seems its something like javascript. in javascript we have ways to open an url, so i suppose its possible with extensions aswell.
    and i remember it was somehow possible with javascript to save a link rather than open it in browser even if its a picture or page

    if thats possible, we can just open them, right? well okay the browser's reaction on opening files probably depends on its settings, but its not like im trying to make some malicious thing, so user's cooperation is expected xD

    end of thought stream

    Default How to save inline image to hard disk

    Hi,

    We are also searching to implement the similar kind of thing. As we know the chrome.tabs.capturevisibletab(....) gives the captured visible tab contents in jpeg encoding through 'data uri'. We want to save that content to hard disk without passing the same as 'src' to an <img>.
    Is it possible? please provide help.

    Thank you

    A related note, if you're on a page with a ton of links that would normally open in the browser (pdf, jpg, swf, etc...) and you want to physically save them to your disk you can either right click and choose "Save link as...," or open them as you normally would and choose Save Page as from the wrench.There is a shortcut to this too. As you click the link hold down your ALT key (in Windows, maybe Option on Mac?) it will automatically ask you if you want to save it.
