Question Download files (MP3s especially) to SD card from internet

I have a Galaxy S3 running Jelly Bean 4.1.1.

When I click a direct link to an MP3 it gets streamed in the browser instead of downloaded.
Here's an example: http://podcast.as34763.net/oconnell/20121224095542.mp3

I would rather download the file it and play it later and have it in permanent local storage.

Has anyone got an idea how I can do this? Ideally with any file format.
This is my 3rd android phone in 4 years and this problem has me baffled.
I have tried with the stock browser, and also Firefox Mobile, Chrome and Dolphin HD.

Have you tried long pressing the link for more options?

This might allow you to download it instead of listening to it!
