Mac Service To Remove File Executable Permissions

One of my pet peeves is seeing text files (usually development related CSS or Ruby) with executable permissions in Finder which override any default icon and show a shell script icon.

Not only is this just annoying, it also may be security risk if you have a lot of files that can be arbitrarily executed when they shouldn't.

I used to do this in the Terminal manually when I encountered it but I've since turned this into an OS X Service.

Download and install the workflow into ~/Library/Services/ and you can now right-click on files, go to Services and remove the executable permission.
