Well, it doesn't matter to me which way the default goes (as long as I know
it's changed!) - but I for one _love_ the feature.

I exploit it to the max - clicking on a page link, see that it's started
downloading, stopping it, then clicking on another page link. This way I can
start several actions I want to do ***NOW*** (;-) and then go back and read
the results (as squid has carried on downloading it - even though I
cancelled it).

Magic :-)
