It seems to be exclusive to chromium, I'm sure that Firefox and Internet Explorer don't do it this way. They don't start downloading until after I select a location for the download.
I mean if I click a link thinking it will take me to a page where I can read details about a download but get the actual download instead. Or if a site is trying to force me to download something without asking me. In either case Opera has already started the download before I can click cancel.
Yes, most of the time. However there is still an unnecessary risk when you download things without confirmation.
