Is it possible to get this application that was included in Tiger? I've tried some other 3rd party ones but nothing as snappy as what was included with Tiger.

Anyone?

why is it better than stuffit?
Because it's better than finicky nigh-abandonware? I've had numerous problems with StuffIt in the past. I finally dropped it for The Unarchiver, which has the added bonus of integrating into the system much more nicely than StuffIt ever did.

I'm gonna switch to the Unarchiver... Is uninstalling Stuffit a very involved process? Will using something like AppZapper remove everything?

Just some more praise for The Unarchiver. Every Mac owner needs this sofware. As others have said, it's quick, seamless, and very unobtrusive.

it dorsnt handle passworded rars at all. I keep a flash drive with me woth
my important business documents to and from work. I was using stuffit and switched to the unarchiver. Because flash drives are so mobile, i always password protect the files in case i lose it. The passworded rar would not open. I had to get stuffit back to access it.

TBH, I've used Stuffit since I started using Macs (As it came with Panther and does the job) and I've found nothing wrong with it.

Each to their own though I guess.
