10.5: Disable the 'downloaded from internet' file warning
Authored by: arcticmac on Aug 25, '09 09:32:11PM

The warning may be annoying most of the time, but I'd say it's worth keeping, if only because then if anyone ever figures out how to make safari (or another browser) download and open a file without the user doing anything, THEN, you get a heads up that something funky is going on. If you're on your toes, you'll notice before the autopilot kicks in, and click cancel instead of OK. But if you're not, at least it's a warning that you just gave permission to run something you probably don't want to, and you can take appropriate steps to remedy the problem ASAP (like unplugging your ethernet cable and trying to find the task you just launched, and then searching out and crushing the whatever-it-was that you just downloaded.
