Default Winrar free download?

Hi All, before I download winrar, just wanted to know if it's actually free. I couldn't tell from the website. Plan to use it to open open .rar files (duh) and also archive files if it's free. Any help is appreciated.

It is free for 30 days. After that you are requested to purchase it. But honestly i have never done it. I use the right click on the rar to extract them and WinRar never actually opens. So i never get prompted.

Yeah I just click on the keep using button (or whatever it says). It's "shareware", I guess, but it doesn't actually do anything when your trial expires beyond the annoying reminder.

Same... it's just there to annoy you.

Awesome, thanks. I just downloaded it. I had about 12 rar files I needed opened. The nag won't bother me, as long as it still functions. I appreciate the help.
