Bug Description

QWebView features an "unsupportedContent" signal which gets sent when content is accessed that the browser can't render itself, this is useful for triggering download actions (unfortunately it's not actually exposed via QML at the moment). Similar functionality would be useful in Oxide to support the content hub integration, so we can trigger sharing to other relevant applications.

In addition to this there's also a "downloadRequested" signal which indicates that the user has explicitly requested the download of a particular URL (e.g. saving an HTML page or an image). I suspect this will be more involved as there'd also need to be a way to actually make these requests in the UI.

After a bit of further work it looks like the "downloadRequested" signal probably isn't necessary (at least from the perspective of the webbrowser-app), as this can be handled purely within QML from the context actions. So only "unssportedContent" is needed for file types that the browser can't display natively.
