Arrrghh. After waiting all day to download a 4 gig iso file from project gutenburg, Safari crashes with 39 minutes to go. I recall reading that Safari had download resume. Double click on the 3.9 gig iso, and it starts over at the very beginning.

*reaches out and smacks someone*

Has anyone actually got the download resume to "resume" rather than "restart"?

Resumable downloads only works with a server that supports it. Otherwise, the download starts over as you're seeing.

I think you should use FTP client for large files instead of using browsers.
