Pet Peeve: Download Managers in Browsers

Am I the only one who hates having a whole separate download manager window to deal with? We’ve got trays up the wazoo in Mac OS X, if we must have a download manager, why can’t the download manager at least be in a tray (side tab in Mozilla is fine)? I don’t care if I can’t see the download’s progress (if it were in a tray) when I close all the browser windows – if I want access to it, I can open up another window. I hate having to go close that little window every time I download something.

Also, if you quit a browser while you’re downloading something – it should give you a "Are you sure you want to quit? You did just tell me to download this file (you jackass!)." prompt before quitting.
