Opera 9.64 Download Problem
by Ketzl - 6/15/09 5:59 PM
I have a Mac OS X, Version 10.4.11 with Intel Core 2 Duo. (I'm more familiar with PCs.)
I have been using Firefox and Safari browsers. I tried to download Opera 9.64 from CNET, and it downloaded "get.pl". Not being sure what would come up, and trusting CNET, I went ahead and said "ok" when pop-up said this contained an application and did I want to download. I also "registered" during the download, thinking it was part of it. Now, I have TextWrangler, and when I click on "About TextWrangler", I get "TextWrangler, a product of Bare Bones Software, Inc., version 2.2.1 (186) of Wed, 14 Feb 2007, copyright 1992-2007 Bare Bones Software, Inc., registered to (me), etc etc etc".
I went to www.Opera.com, tried to download from there, and get a box saying I've "chosen to open Opera_9.64_Setup_Intel.dmg which is a:DMG file from: http://get.opera.com" etc etc. I think this is right.
So, I think there's glitch on CNET(???). Maybe the "get.pl" was supposed to be "get.opera" with a different link?
My question is: Is my Mac okay having downloaded the "get.pl" download of TextWrangler? Please advise and, I hope, put my mind at ease.
