Re: List Full Download History of Your Mac

Specifically, some applications opt-in to quarantining via a key in their Info.plist, but Apple also includes in the OS a plist containing bundle identifiers of some applications (just common web browsers, last I checked) whose downloads the quarantine system automatically quarantines regardless of whether the application has opted-in itself.

So if you download files with command-line tools like curl or wget or a with third-party application that isn't on Apple's list and hasn't opted-in to quarantining, then those files won't be quarantined (and won't be included in this database).
