Is there some way to have igetter not start just for one link in Chrome?

Occasionally igetter doesn't work for a link (I think it's when there's javascript behind the link, or some other magic - igetter often ends up thinking the file is called index.html).

In this case I wan't chrome to handle the download...

Browser plugins by design handle predefined file types in all sites without exceptions. So, in iGetter preferences you can specify only file types which you want to be intercepted. Per site plugin preferences are handled differently in browsers.

In Chrome you can disable iGetter plugin just right before you want to click on the download and then enable it when you need it again. To do so, type chrome://plugins in the Chrome's address bar and disable iGetter plugin. Then you will be able to download that specific file with Chrome. For your convenience you can add "chrome://plugins" page to your bookmarks bar. Just right click on the bookmark and choose "Open in a new tab" (also middle mouse click will open it in a new tab). Then disable the iGetter plugin and download the file with Chrome on the former tab.

Firefox provides complete control over each download. Contrary to Chrome and Safari, when you disable iGetter plugin in Firefox Add-on preferences, you will be able to select iGetter as an option on the Firefox "Save As" dialog.
