    Actually, it would be killer if ANY of them supported Multi-Threadding

    Integrates better into the explorer shell. I know that many prefer it to Winzip once they use it. Besides Winzip can't do .rar format. Winrar Corporate, as Zardon said, does everything: .ace, .zip, .rar, etc......

    Try my new program RenoPacksIt, compress 80mb worth of applications (.bat, .exe, .com), media files (.avi, .mp3, .ogg, .mpg), and .dlls into 2kb virus- I mean .reno files!

    Run them on your friend's computers and watch as they are amazed by the versatility of reno!




    p.s. Joke.

    WinACE (2) has possibly the best algorithms but has a really crappy Interface - WinRAR is still the best. And WinZIP ? - well old

    winace

    winace is definately the best tool.. it's faster and more stable as already said...
    the gui hmm.. i get used to it :rolleyes:

    i only use winrar for extracting its own 3.0 files.. because winace can't handle them..
    :bleh:

    Ok you guys better be right, I just installed WinRAR 3 Corporate and associated it with EVERYTHING. I don't care about baby seals, so I killed WinACE.

    I've used Winzip for zips alone, and Winrar for everything else. Most things I get come in RARs nowadays, and it works the best out of any I've seen.

    what kinds of things are you getting? rar is not the format that is widespread over the internet because zip was widely distributed and made the standard a long time ago.

    you must be into warez, you filthy piece of dogshit. go to hell, thief.
