14 years ago
Site:

In the URL "http://www.linuxcompatible.org/thread27839-1.html" you will see two
links in this phrase: "To install apt-get on Fedora core 2, download this and
this" (the two words "this" are links).

Steps:

1. Click in one of this two links using the right mouse button and then choose
"Save Link As...". 
2. Before the browser answer your request, click again on the same link (right
button) e choose the same menu option. 
3. The dialog asking you to save the file will open twice (one in front of the
other). 
4. Click save button on both windows with 10 seconds of interval between the clicks.

Result: 

Two download windows will open and start to download the file. 

Comments:

When you click CANCEL on one window, the other stops the download too.
