5.1.7   Internet-enabled

When an Internet-enabled disk image is downloaded by Safari (and Safari’s Open “safe” files after downloading preference is checked), it is automatically expanded into a folder and the disk image file is moved to the trash.

If the disk image has a background picture, it is not transferred to the expanded folder.

Note: Safari under Mac OS X 10.7 and later does not honor the Internet-enabled setting, although there has been no indication from Apple that the feature has been removed.

Note: On Mac OS X 10.2.2 through 10.2.8, this also happens whenever an Internet-enabled disk image is mounted (by any program). On earlier versions of Mac OS X, Internet-enabled disk images are treated just like other disk images.
