comment What does error “the Classic Environment is no longer supported” mean?
True; added as comment. I believe my explanation of what Classic is and why non-Classic apps appear as Classic would still be valid though.

Why was your rar 177 bytes? Are there any files that were lost during compression?

comment What is installd, and why is it eating my CPU?
Also, I believe the super risky can-leave-your-system-dead-if-killed updates are the ones that require restart and install only when all users are logged out.

comment What is installd, and why is it eating my CPU?
Mac OS X installers typically do lengthy operations (unpacking, compiling) on install files in a temporary location, and spend relatively little time actually moving the files into place. You can see this for yourself if you run an installer that reports its progress. This suggests that there is a unlikely but existent chance it might leave your system in an inconsistent state. In addition, the last step of install is writing a "install completed" receipt, so if that doesn't get written, it'll just probably try to install the software again later, fixing the inconsistency.

comment How do I disable Chrome's two-finger back/forward navigation?
You never need the .plist. Can you remove that part of the answer?

comment “Search in Google” always open Safari instead of default browser
> "Maybe since they don't know how to pass a webpage in parameter for every browser in the wild, I suppose they limited it to Safari." This is definitely false. OS X already has a preference for setting the default web browser for opening URLs. "Search with Google" blatantly ignores this setting. Also: open -a anybrowser http://google.com

comment How to find the location of an icon file on OS X?
I finally managed to reproduce the file in the screenshot — it's a Quick Look-generated preview of certificate files. Making icons larger reveals the sad truth that,unfortunately, a higher-res image does not appear to exist. i.stack.imgur.com/QHufs.png

Certificate Assistant.icns and droppedImage.png in /System/Library/CoreServices/Certificate Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/ are similar images at a higher resolution.
