    Disable mouse click save-as with Mac?

    Anyone know of a script that will disable the save-as function when a user is using a Mac? I have a script which disables the right mouse click functions of Windows browsers but it does not work for Macs.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    It doesnt work for anyone.

    YOU CANNOT PROTECT HTML CONTENT. End of story.

    Why even bother, all you have to do is disable the javascript. Spend your efforts elsewhere...

    Just trying to protect the site from the 99.99% of web users who don't know these little tricks.

    Mac's don't have a right button. We normally just goto VIEW>SOURCE. So don't bother.

    If your goal is to disable the click to "save image as" (yes you can go this with a Mac), try embedding the graphics in your CSS backgrounds.

    This is far more practicle for Headers and larger content areas, but it's better than nothing.

    As others have said, total protection isn't possible.

    Thank you! This is what I was looking for.
    I never said anything about hiding source.
