TIP: MacBooster 2 - A powerful, recommended cleaner for your Mac.
BetterZip can open and extract archives with the most common formats: ZIP, SIT, TAR, GZip, BZip2, RAR, 7-Zip, CPIO, ARJ, LZH/LHA, JAR, WAR, CAB, ISO, CHM, RPM, DEB, NSIS, BIN, HQX, DD.
Then search for a file with the search box like in iTunes. Strip Mac specific files and resource forks from archives for best compatibility with systems like Windows or Linux.
Clean user interface
BetterZip sports a clean new user interface which will look familiar to most Mac users. Similar to the Finder it has a sidebar on the left side into which you can drop your favorite folders for archives, e.g., your downloads folder. This favorites list is populated using Spotlight and can be filtered very fast.
In addition to the preview (which was also greatly enhanced), BetterZip has Quick Look built-in. Just select a file and press the spacebar.
Archive operations queue
BetterZip has a queue for executing multiple archive operations in an ordered way. You can let Mac OS X decide how many operations to run at the same time or set it manually.
A powerful archive password manager
The new archive password manager helps you work with encrypted archives like no other archiver does. You can have BetterZip collect a list of archive passwords in your keychain. These can be used automatically whenever you open an encrypted archive. Alternatively, BetterZip can display them in a list in the password panel, so you can easily choose the one to use.
Edit and update archives
When you open a file in an archive with the View command and edit it with an external editor, BetterZip will detect the changes and give you the option to update the archive.
Create presets for creating and extracting archives. Presets collect all settings that can be applied to an archive, from the destination folder and archive format, to passwords and even a script to execute after the operation completed.
Offers two configurable services, one for creating and one for extracting archives. Choose a preset for each which can be started through the Services menu, the Finder contextual menu and it can even be given a shortcut key.
Quickly test an archive without extracting it to find out whether it is damaged.
More super-ultra power features
BetterZip can filter out extracted files similar to archive creation time cleaning. No more Thumbs.db and other unwanted stuff from other systems!
Add custom options to archiving operations, e.g., specify the dictionary size or build solid archives. Or, if you don't care about these techy details, let BetterZip choose the best options.
