Why can't you open the link in the following demo:
[html5-demos.appspot.com ]

You cannot even right click and open it in a new tab/window. Is there any setting in the browser I need to customize?

Are you referring to the "something" link within the text that says "Navigating to a something isn't cool."? I'm able to click on that with IE11 (though part of it is covered by the text that starts with "What is this?").

Same results with that statement covered by window that says this:


What is this?

A demo of the HTML5 download attribute. When used on an anchor, this attribute signifies that the resource it points to should be downloaded by the browser rather than navigating to it.

'Create file' creates a .txt file from the contenteditable region's content. This is done by using window.URL.createObjectURL(). That generated file can be named and saved to the user's machine by setting the download attribute on a link.

Browser support: right now, only Chrome dev channel (14.0.835.15+) supports this attribute.

Worked for me. Now, what does this mean?

Actually I'm referring to the download link. Here's a simplified demo:

The problem doesn't seem to be due to the
download
attribute. Here's a demo without it:

For some reason, jsfiddle isn't loading for me. But the download link in your original link worked for me (by that I mean it loaded the Google logo when I clicked on the link).
