    I've been using the unarchiver since I switched to a mac, but I find it much more limiting than iZarc on Windows. For instance, when I tried to extract a password protect file, it just extracted a bunch of 0kb files because it doesn't ask for passwords. Also, there's no way to browse the achieve. If it's a 2Gb archive and you only need 1 file, too bad, you need to extract everything and then deleted the unndeed. Is there a more powerful compression application on the mac.

    Stuffit Expander is the best (it's free too.) Handles passwords fine.

    Stuffit Deluxe lets you view archive contents and fancy stuff like that.

    Stuffit Deluxe because it lets you view the contents of the files before you open them... and then take single files out as to the ones that you want...

    But for Expanding.. UnRarX...
