link to site OR link to instant download?

is there a convention governing whether a 
link immediately downloads something to your
desktop as opposed to a link that goes to a 
site where you can read about that download
and browse through other offerings?

sometimes i just want to see the author's 
site and read the blurbs. of course copying
the URL to the Address field and deleting a 
few /***/*** also works.
