If you have followed all the steps of this tutorial properly, your minecraft is ready, remembering that shaders and textures require a computer with good settings, if you have a lot of lag, see a tutorial on how to remove minecraft lag using optifine.

if you want to learn more about Optifine, I made a blog with lots of information about this amazing mod, worth reading.

I followed the steps, but when I went to start the installation it just took me to a z-zip file. How do I activate the installer, and not open the zip?

OptiFine for Minecraft 1.13 isn't available yet, see the official website here.

I don't know what mod you're pointing us to but I would definitely advice readers not to trust this because, as mentioned, it's not the official OptiFine mod meaning that for all I know it could contain backdoor code which tries to steal our Minecraft accounts.

At the very least this mod looks like a very suspicious rip off because it's using the same name.

I'm pretty sure that this was written when unstable 1.13 optifine versions were available, but I could be wrong.
