I’d forgotten Safari did this, after replacing my mac a few weeks ago I was trying to download a ZIP file from Github, and was perplexed that it was getting extracted to a folder in my downloads folder, and not appearing as a ZIP file?
After about the third time, the penny dropped. Safari does this by default. You need to disable it. Safari > Preferences > General > UNTICK : Open “Safe” Files after downloading. (It’s at the bottom!)
