Need to download something quickly from the web to your desktop or Chromebook? Next time, just hold down Alt (Option on a Mac) while clicking on a link and the file will immediately start downloading to your device.

Didn't know this one - great tip!
 
Does this also work in either Firefox or IE?
 
and how you can accidentally press a button and click a mouse button at the same time? XD
 
Bwahaha, who uses Windows is the real question!

Android, Chrome OS and Ubuntu here....

don't turn this into a flame war, Windows is nice and Mac is (in my opinion) better, but that is completely debatable. some days i get sick of Mac and use Windows, sometimes i use OS X or Ubuntu. it's all personal opinion.
 
Si, yo no soy elitista, jamás discriminaría a los pobres que no pueden comprar un mac... XDDD

i feel a bit dumb for saying this, but what the heck's a chromebook? am i missing something?
 
Google's new OS for certain laptops. And yes. You are missing a lot.
 
You have to add this function to Google Chrome: for web sites like Deviantart or Google Images. Download a image holding down Alt and clicking on the image. Opera have a similar function with the images.
