    Extract RAR and ZIP files using PeaZip Archive Manager

    Most of us daily come across compressed files in mostly two formats .RAR and .ZIP. We use Winzip and WinRAR to decompress and compress them. But, both of them are not free. They come in evaluated version. We need to purchase it to get it a full version which won’t show annoying wait message.

    To avoid all this, You could try using this new PeaZip to extract RAR and ZIP files. “PeaZip Archive Manger” is an open source application. It also supports other formats other than RAR and ZIP formats.

      PeaZip looks great but I haven’t tried it yet as I use 7-zip and haven’t come accross any problems with it yet. This looks like it has a much nicer interface though.

      After a little comparison, 7-zip is faster to load and has a nicer context menu for me, peazip seems to use 7-zip for some functionality anyway.
      Peazip looks nicer but I’ll be sticking with 7-zip πŸ™‚
