Save as?

by jonasdash    Dec 24, 2007, 10:21 PM

I'm looking for an app that will allow me the option to "Save file as" when downloading.

Normally if I click a link in Palm's Blazer it gives me the three standard options:

Save to Device
Save to Card

the problem is that some sites that I use have a generic filename for all their generated content (say the filename they use is named "random") It doesn't save the file with a file extension, and it always wants to save the file name as the same name.

What I have to do if I want to download multiple files from the site I have to download one file, Exit to my FileZ app, rename to a different name (and add an extension to be properly associated with my TCPMP or whatever app) Then, reload my Blazer app and download the next item and rinse / repeat.

So... anyone know of a way to add the Save File As... functionality thast you would normally see with a normal PC web browser?

Thanks in advance!
