Agreed. WinRAR is way better then WinZip. WinRAR is more powerful because it can implempt for .zip files aswell as .rar. :) It's awesome. :P

What is so hard about 7-zip that you can't right-click on the .rar file, then select 7-zip > Extract Here (or wherever you want to extract your files to)? 7-zip is an outstanding program that supports more than just .rar files.

 

WinRAR:

 

Using WinRAR puts you ahead of the crowd when it comes to compression by consistently making smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs.

WinRAR provides complete support for RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives.

WinRAR offers a graphic interactive interface utilizing mouse and menus as well as the command line interface.

When you purchase WinRAR license you are buying a license to the complete technology, no need to purchase add-ons to create self-extracting files, it's all included. One price, one payment, once.

You also receive the benefit of a life-time use of the WinRAR archiver. No upgrade fee to pay. When a new release is made, simply download and install, your license is valid for life.

WinRAR is easier to use than many other archivers with the inclusion of a special "Wizard" mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions through a simple question and answer procedure. This avoids confusion in the early stages of use.

WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits.

WinRAR supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. The number of archived files is, for all practical purposes, unlimited.

WinRAR offers the ability to create selfextracting and multivolume archives.

Recovery record and recovery volumes allow to reconstruct even physically damaged archives.

WinRAR features are constantly being developed to keep WinRAR ahead of the pack.

The numbers tell all. I personally prefer 7-zip (coming from WinZip) for ease of use.

which is faster? winrar or 7zip?


rayzoredge

Numbers on compression comparing effectiveness can be found on this article, and numbers on speed can be found on this article. :) Looks like it's file-type dependent.

thank you so much the last time i checked winrar is the fastest but 7z gives best compression at cost of a lot of speed.

Well I do find Winrar very useful and easy and if you have the tweaked version which most of you don't then it is extremely powerful! Some research showed that Winrar Tweaked version was one the fastest to compress or extract items on a Windows/Mac/linux PC, Therefore in my conculsion I do think it is the best out there.
