About the downloads, I believe that most users have to move downloaded files
from ~/.surf/dl before doing anything with them.
What about externalize the downloading task to a simple script
which make you choose the destination first?
It could simplify surf's code?

Right-clicking on the link and copy it is the preminaliry task of the user.

The script named cdd for "choose download directory" depends only on wget
and on suckless tools (and sort if you like)

In this script lsd is suckless lsx with S_ISDIR instead of S_ISREG on line 28
You just stop directory navigation and start the download with escape.
I apologize for my scripting style...

dir=`lsd $PWD | sort | dmenu -p $PWD`
[ -z $dir ]
if [ $? = 1 ]; then
  cd $dir && cdd ; else
  wget --user-agent=usetheoneyoulike `sselp`

attached an lsd tarball
