From the Switcher FAQ,
Quote:
Once downloaded (by default, to your desktop) the dmg should automatically open (see below if it does not). Once the dmg is open, you'll see one or more files in a new window.

Drag the application icon to your applications folder.

Once the app is in your applications folder you can "eject" the dmg from the top left pane in finder, or by dragging the mounted file on your desktop to the trash (trash will then turn into an eject icon).
Then if you like, trash the dmg file or if you want to save it, you could archive it to cd-r or the like.
You don't have to double-click it, or run an installer unless it specifically comes with one.
9.99 times out of 10 all you need to do is drag the app to your Applications folder.
