Comment (by ddavid123):

 Web Positive already has a "default" download folder, the
 /boot/home/Desktop directory.  If the default is changed to
 /boot/home/Downloads, then as luroh said we would have many people asking
 where their downloads went.  So I ask you which is worse, people wondering
 why Haiku doesn't have a default /boot/home/Downloads directory, or many
 more wondering why Haiku has eaten their downloads?

 In my opinion, it is not difficult at all to create a /Downloads directory
 in the home directory and then tell Webpositive to save the downloads
 there.  People who use Haiku already know how to do these things and
 probably don't see the lack of a "Downloads" directory a problem.

 If however enough people see this as an issue, I have a solution.  The
 first time Webpositive atempts to download a file, a smaller window would
 pop up and give the user an option of where to save the file.  Either it
 would be saved in the /boot/home/Desktop directory or the
 /boot/home/Downloads directory!  Once the option has been selected, all
 further downloads would be saved there.
