Eric, do you mean the dlbsnail and S3.dlbsnail? Or do you mean the
"LinkDownloads"? The last one I've not been able to get to work (seems to
do nothing).

In fact, after these couple of days of usage, I have tweaked the config so
that most of my muscle memory with Conkeror does not need to be
changed. But the download thing is still not great because when I try to
save something I am eventually offered one of those dreaded pop-up
file-explorer-like windows.

In contrast, with Conkeror after typing a key (s) and the hint, in the
bottom mini-buffer like I can use common Emacs keybindings to modify
path, names, etc. 

Am I am missing something?
