Description Bernd Oliver Sünderhauf 2013-07-30 10:21:34 UTC
"Save Link" in the context menu should be "Save Destination" (or maybe "Save link destination"), because it's the referenced page being saved rather than the link or URL itself.

Because it does something completely different, it also shouldn't be grouped with "Copy Link".
Rather it's "Copy Link", "Bookmark link" and "Share link" which are doing similar things. So if subdividing is needed at all here, "Copy Link" should be grouped with the latter two.

In any case, "Save Destination" is used much less often than "Copy Link", so we should make sure "Copy Link" appears as the first item of a grouping.

Reproducible: Always

Expected Results:  
Either of these would be fine:

Proposal 1:
Copy Link
Bookmark Link
Share Link
Save Destination...

Proposal 2:
Copy Link
Bookmark Link
Share Link
Save Destination...

Proposal 3:
Save Destination...
Copy Link
Bookmark Link
Share Link
Comment 1 Bernd Oliver Sünderhauf 2013-07-30 10:37:56 UTC
The context menu of a linked image of course needs to be in line with this.
As in this case, the context menu has a few more options, proposal 1 (see above) might be preferable to keep things easy to grasp.

Also, the four link-related actions are torn apart in this case with some image-related action being placed in the middle, which is quite hard to grasp. IMHO, the link-related actions should stay together, with the image-related actions either preceding or trailing in a separate grouping. 

Such as:
Copy Link
Bookmark Link
Share Link
Save Destination...
View Image
Save image as...
Copy image location
Share image location
Block image

Group inspect action alone as requested and reorganized action as
proposed. Now we have

"Save link" is the text chosen in KDE, webkit, chrom* && firefox. I
don't want to change it.

True, however in IE and Opera it's named "Save target as...".
There's also a longstanding issue with Firefox: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=275475, and in the meantime some official translations (at least the German) have decided to use the equivalent of "Save target as...".
So it's not like there were no precedents, and semantically it remains the correct choice.

I slightly preferred "Save destination as..." but would be fine with either of "Save destination as..." or "Save target as...".
Tentatively reopening the issue for a potential followup.
Don't want to annoy you with it, though - you're responsiveness is outstanding, and I'm full of respect about the way you're maintaining Rekonq!

Development on Rekonq ceased four years ago, and it has been unmaintained since then. KDE recommends using Falkon instead.
