    question about downloads
    The answer here must be easy, but I don't know it: when using Safari, is there a way to manually choose where to download files? I don't always want it set to the same folder, but it seems like in the preferences menu, that is your only option.

    As far as I know, Safari doesn't allow you to choose where to save the downloaded file upon downloading. I think the intent is to have you place your Downloads folder in the Dock as a Stack for easy access. At least that's how Stacks were demoed when the feature was first introduced.

    With that said, if you don't like the "feature", I would highly recommend Firefox (Safari is a pretty crummy browser in my opinion, and this is just one example where it is very inflexible compared to contemporary browsers.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
