It would be much more useful if it set the time stamp to the same value as on the server (when this is possible). Then it would be much easier to tell which files are newer than similarly named other files, possibly downloaded at different times or from different mirrors or sites. The GNU wget tool does this very nicely... just use the same algorithm. I often abort a download, copy its URL and redo it with wget just to get the date set properly. But, this is very tedious to do. The same could be done for saving html pages: set the html file's date to the same value as on the server. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download a file or save a page (ctrl-s). 2. 3. Actual Results: Date of the saved file is the current time. Expected Results: Would prefer the timestamp on the file be set to the time/date specified by the server. None.
