Restore Safari’s Downloads Keyboard Shortcut

Daniel Jalkut:

Downloads used to be shown in a completely separate window, which could be toggled using the keyboard shortcut Cmd-Option-L. In Lion, they appear in a popover panel attached to the toolbar of whatever browser window you happen to be using. Unfortunately, there is no keyboard shortcut to toggle the appearance of this popover.

Using FastScripts and a simple UI Scripting script, I was able to restore this functionality, so that Safari on Lion toggles the appearance using the old familiar Cmd-Opt-L shortcut.
