    Default Downloads improvement suggestion

    Currently, all downloads seem to be placed in a simple table element.

    It's pretty difficult to figure out which download link to click since the file name is far to the left. Users have to either look at the link address or paint a line with their mouse. Since the links are already in a table, it should be pretty easy to either simply add borders to the table or do something more fancy, like adding background color for the row currently below mouse cursor. Just an idea, thanks for reading

    imho it would make the whole page a lot dirtier.

    presently it's pretty clean, and even though you do have a point by saying it's not very easy to point out the chapter with its corresponding d/l link that issue is kind of secondary since when you move your mouse pointer over the d/l link you see the link in your address bar before you download it.

    That is if you are not in a hurry
    All that we see or seems, is but a dream within within a dream.

    If you have a download manager (mine is Down Them All) you can use the menu 'save all link in page' and then chose all the download links for the chapter that you want to download.

    useful when you want to download lots of chapter at once.

    Personally I think everything is pretty simple. The download link should be shown at the bottom of your browser, but if enough people are not happy I could see about having CSS changes made.

    Setting it so that the table row would hilight on mouse-over (say, with a grey background instead of white) would probably be ideal and wouldn't negatively impact the aesthetics.

    This is the sort of thing that's most usefull when the chapters you're downloading are in the middle of the list, rather than the end - as in the case of series that have lots of missing chapters or if you've just recently decided to start following something like One Piece...
