Here's a few tips for using Downie:
To start, you can drag a link from any browser either on Downie's window, or the icon in the Dock.
If you have more links, or links within some text, just drop the whole thing onto Downie - it will scan the text for links.
You can use copy and paste as well - just press Command-O in Downie and you can insert all the links in the world!
