Apparently, Telegram Desktop generates these files during "failed" searches when using the @gif command. The ones that Telegram generates are easily identified by being named with a series of 18 digits (e.g 532576936841446647.download), usually similar to one another, and always at zero-bytes length. You can replicate the issue by trying some @gif searches ...

Safari for Windows was dropped at version 6, in 2012. It is no longer available for download, directly from Apple, though can be found on several file hosters. The last version of Safari for Windows was 5.1.7, released May 9, 2012. I would say testing against such an outdated version would not really be useful at all. There's a long article on resurrecting ...

I find it most useful to create a .bash_alias file and add it to your .bash_profile. Add this alias to .bash_alias and any other useful command line scripts. alias resetsafari='rm -rf ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/com.apple.Safari.savedState; rm ~/Library/Safari/LastSession.plist You will need to source .bash_profile again to refresh the aliases. ...

DNSSEC is an extension of the DNS infrastructure. Usually a browser is not involved in domain name resolution. So there is no way for Safari to detect DNSSEC directly.

I just tried this in 10.11.4 and it works; you can see the history. If someone clears the cache, this goes away. Go to the following location: /Users/yourname/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari/History/ From here you can change the view to List View and sort by Date Modified.

It is not a specific device. It means that your web site was viewed using the UIWebView functionality on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch). The UIWebView is different from the ordinary Safari browser, as it is not a stand-alone browser, but merely browser functionality that is embedded in a third party app.

With the demise of Glims support (beyond Mavericks?), I broke down and wrote a cron job to automatically change the default download folder of Safari. The crontab entries look like: @reboot $HOME/bin/rotateDownloads 0 0 * * * $HOME/bin/rotateDownloads The contents of rotateDownloads looks like: #! /bin/ksh NEWPATH=$HOME/downloads/$(date +%Y-%m-%d) ...

I suggest going to https://developer.apple.com/support/certificates/ and do a bit of research on certificates. Certs are used to verify the identity of whoever made a program, or owns a website (for encrypted connections). At that link you can also find the apple-supplied root certs you can add to your keychain if you're missing any specific certificate, ...
