Way better than WinRAR, and completely free. I use this every single day.

If you do not already have WinRAR or plan to purchase it, then I feel that this application is the best alternative, period.
It has a wide range of support, is quick, capable, has solid encryption and an open architecture.
If you haven't tried it yet, you should. It may just become your go-to compression application.
This particular release (9.28 Alpha) does not appear to have broken anything. I'll post more if I find otherwise.

The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be.
