This is an INCORRECT decision not give users the OPTION to at least automatically open Files IF THEY CHOOSE.. if you want to default it to open in a folder then that is fine.. But, I run an IT Recruitment Agency, I open 400 CV's per day, that is 800 seconds per day of my life being wasted so 14 mins per day, it's nearly 6 hours per month sat waiting to click a folder, to open a CV I have already told it once I want to OPEN!!!
I understand the issues, yet not ONCE in 20 years has my virus scan software failed to spot an issue/ macro with a document, how about at least give your users the credit they deserve to make their own mind-up about auto-downloading a document as to me your browser is the best.. but is COMPLETELY IMPRACTICAL not allowing auto-open function on downloads, I don't have 6 hours per month to wait EVERY SECOND COUNTS, so I will unfortunately have to opt for another browser as I imagine 25-50% of your user-base does for the same reason they just don't bother to tell you why they go elsewhere but that IS the reason
Please give your users the OPTION - with security warning all over it if you think we need some instructions about opening files from unknown sites!
