    Will be there ever an Archive File Manager within OS X ??
    The OS that aim to be "The Best OS in the World" don't include a very very very simple tool to manage archive files like zip,far,7z....

    Windows got it, it's stupid but got it. Anyway there is the best free alternative: 7-Zip.
    Linux got it with File Roller
    OSX, just click and extract ALL files. Why I cannot choose a single file to extract? Why I can't see which files inside?

    And NO free alternatives. Keka?? No, it's good, but NOT a Archive Manager.

    7-zip for OSX is NOT an Archive File Manager, like Windows version.
    It's a "simple" compress/extract utility, repeat NOT an Archive File Manager.

    I agree that it's very annoying.

    However, BetterZip does do what you want - it lets you both browse archives and do the OS X-style "click to extract". Enjoy.

    Thank you, BetterZip seems to be "the best" alternative by now, unfortunatly it's not free.
    Again, thanks.
