WinRAR adds more options when you right-click a zip file like Extract files here & extract all files. I use it more than WinZip.

Yeah, everyone is right. Winrar is probably the most simple and best because it is easy to use and supports most other compressions

How about winrar's ability to zip a 10 gig file. you could break it up in small chunks or in 1 large file

I found that 7-zip compresses files to less than half the size that WinZip does. The disadvantage is that files compressed with 7-zip has to be opened with 7-zip (but, if you select that option, 7-zip can open files compressed with WinZip); I don't know if that's the case with WinRAR.

7-zip can be downloaded for free from:
