10.5: Remove the 'downloaded file' warning flag
Authored by: Swift on Nov 09, '07 09:50:24AM

I don't think this is "Vista-like," and I don't want to remove this reminder. If you know where the file comes from and you trust it, it's one keypress added. It doesn't happen all the time, just the first click on a downloaded file. There will be more attempts to breach OS X. This is a needed barrier.

10.5: Remove the 'downloaded file' warning flag

I don't see how reminding me of what I just told the computer to do is "needed", but okay, if you like it nobody is forcing you to disable it. This is MacOSXHints, not MacOSXMandatoryChanges.

"Vista-like" is certainly arguable.

You're certainly free to keep the alert. :) I (the submitter) agree that warnings like these are a good thing for non-expert users, but I dislike that there isn't an option to disable it, for users that know what they're doing. You will probably agree that warnings you don't need are annoying.
