Any web browser with "multi-select"?


Currently, I use Mozilla Firefox, and love tabbed browsing. However, there's one feature I wish it had--some sort of "multi-select" for selecting many links at once.

For example, lets say I'm looking at a wallpaper gallery on a thumbnail page. I'd like to select a bunch of thumbnails with a selection box, and then open them all in tabs, or save them all to the local drive.

Is there a tabbed web browser with this sort of capability? Or maybe Mozilla Firefox already has this ability; I'm just not aware of it?

Thanks!

Mozilla and firefox are both tabbed browsers. You can change the setings but I have my tabs set to open in the background when I middle click on them.

Yes, yes, I'm already adicted to open-in-background tabbed web browsing. But I'm hoping to open a BUNCH of links into a bunch of tabs all at once, instead of going click-happy with the middle button one-at-a-time.

wget

You could try wget, It'll download all the links or just a range http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html

Addon Linky

Well, just a few months too late, I want to post for other searchers:
For Firefox (and Mozilla Websuite) there is an addon called Linky:
http://gemal.dk/mozilla/linky.html

It opens selected, all or all-to-image links in new tabs or windows just from the right mouse button. Instead of wget its interactive and you see instantley what you get

Ciao, Dunkeltron

Also check out

They work with Galeon so should work with any Netscape/Mozilla based browser.
