How to save audio files if linked to directly

Dave Seah linked to a SXSW panel (via Twitter), discussing “How to make your lame podcast listenable“. Problem? It goes directly to an MP3 file, so you can only listen to it within the browser and QuickTime. Not quite.

Solution: [Firefox] Go to File > Save Page As. Save that file wherever you’d like, and you’re done! For me, IE 6 doesn’t seem to allow saving that MP3 file from the browser window.

Note: I wasn’t sure how to title this. Sorry!

Update: I didn’t know of the SXSW podcasts page, which link to the MP3 above, as well as a bunch of others. I think I’ll be downloading a bunch of these tonight for later listening.
