Gnome "Here are my few suggestions to make better desktop (making it simple but powerful). Most of them are for GNOME and related applications but for other desktop environments and applications could be also useful. This suggestions are not of type make it faster (what is also important) but of type make it more useful. Some of them are my own thoughts but some suggestions are inspired by existing programs. And even some are not real suggestions." Note that English isn't his native tongue.

[i]"Continue stopped/broken downloads", doesn't firefox have a resume function?
No, once you stop a download or your connection breaks you have to start at the start again.[i]

Not quite. Firefox can resume the download provided that you did quit Firefox when the download failed and the server supports resume.

Now, I agree that Fx's implementation of download resume is very poor and improvements are slated for Fx2
