I save LOTS and LOTS of stuff. Pretty much everything I read!
Lately I have noticed something both peculiar, scary, yet somewhat handy…
It seems that FireFox knows what I am saving?!
What do I mean??
Well, as far as I can remember, the last web page I saved in FireFox was some news article. Whatever article I would have saved would have went to my - you guessed it - “Articles” folder!
So, when I just went to save a new word that I learned (i.e. “panopoly”), then why did FireFox open up to my “Vocabulary” folder??
(Most apps remember the last directory you were in, and will default to there when you do a Save-As. But I’ve never seen an app where the Save-As seems to consistently match the type of thing I’m saving?!)
I have had this happen several times over the last couple of weeks.
From a practical point of view it’s awesome, because my filing structure on my MBP is enormous, and it takes me forever to navigate to the folder I want to “Save As” in when I toggle between News Articles, Vocabulary words, IT Articles, Photos, etc.
But I just don’t see how FireFox - or my Mac - could be smart enough to say, “Oh, Debbie is over at www.dictionary.com, so when she goes to save something, that means it should go in her “Vocabulary” folder!”
Am I losing my mind, or is this possible?? :-/
P.S. I’m not making this stuff up!!
