    I can download from the internet then transfer to my NAS, but does anyone know if it is possible to download directly to the NAS?

    It would be nice to press a download link and then get the download location prompt with the NAS as an option.

    Cheers! :)

    I can easily add a network drive / samba share in a file management app such as Astro. But I guess I need to be able to do something similar in an internet browser, maybe via an add on?

    It is possible in principle if you are a developer.

    Start by seeing whether AndSMB works on your device.

    If it does, then you could create an app which would be accessed via the browser's "Share" menu, and which would use AndSMB's intents published here.

    Your app would still need to make a local copy of the file on your sd card but then automatically delete it.

    HTH ...
