    Ok now that OS X can open ZIP files I am a happy camper! Is there any setting that will erase the ZIP file after it's been opened?

    Anyway to get Safari to open a zip file so I can open the actual file from the download manager and not just uncompress the zip file?

    I just started playing with Path Finder! This is the FINDER apple should have!

    OS X has been able to handle .zip files for some time now, I don't think this is anything new. And, I think that Safari will not touch a .zip file, you'll just need to uncompress it yourself like normal. You can set Stuffit Expander to delete the .zip after it's been uncompressed.
