    They should automatically unzip when you try to open them.

    I'm pretty sure OS X has the built in ability to open them by just double clicking.

    Anyway, get yourself The Unarchiver (direct DL), it will handle everything.

    Its probably just a problem with your Mac ;). Try Get Info (Command I) on an appropriate file and then change the "Open With" application to Unarchiver and press "Change All".

    I always keep Stuffit Expander and The Unarchiver for my expanding needs :)

    Each one can't handle some file types which the other can...

    I did that, and unarchiver would barf up errors. I asked about it here and was told it's a known issue with the unarchiver.

    How do I unzip!?

    Get Stuffit Expander, google it, this is a free download.

    Whenever I download a file the expansion of that file is automatic. Whenever the download does not expand, it's because the download is corrupt. Download again.
