Publisher's Description

ZipGenius has all the main features of compression programs (zip, unzip and so on), but it's different from the others because it offers very special features. You can give better protection to your archives using encryption instead of the standard zip password, you can send e-mail using the built-in mail client or you can publish archives on the Web with FTPGenius, the built-in FTP client.

While at home I use IZArc, I tried to install ZipGenius at work because it looked visually nicer than IZarc. Yet, I found that it has bugs and limitations that make it inferior to IZArc. I thus switched to IZArc also at work. Both are freeware.
Lack of complete Support for Unicode is one of the major problems of this software.

I have used ZipGenius for about 4 years and never looked back It is a great,free utility. It can compress and unzip almost any archive format.

After comparing many different free and commercial zip utilities, one feature stood out. I really appreciate the ability to automatically scan downloaded files with your antivirus software before committing to unzip and extract them. Users of FileForum might find this feature particularly useful -- you can be exposed to a lot of malware when trying free software.

Great program love the self extracting zip files. Win Zip doesn't have it.

I find nothing special about this archiver. 7-Zip and IZArc blow it out of the water. It's huge, (18mb compared to 3mb for 7-Zip) It doesn't unarchive ISO or IMG files, it's not really portable. I do like the Explorer extensions, but that's about all.

I discovered ZipGenius on File Forum when looking for a replacement for WinZip. That was in about 2005. Going into 2008, this is still a great free program.

Nice multi-archive tool. Not bad for a free utility. Had a lot of features, and works with all of the major archive types.

I found this, when looking for a freeware archive uncompress tool for a friend that needed one.

I appreciate the interface, but please do tell me what does this have more than WinRAR? Even WinZip?

Matteo is definitely a class act, as is ZipGenius. But be sure to download the Suite version as it includes the cutter tool and other features. It was reviewed this week along with other archivers here.

I have been using ZipGenius for sometime and it is a great program. Compared to other programs like WinZip and WinRar, ZipGenius is equally good. The program is free and it performs equally or better than its paid for counter parts.

Pretty nice tool. Unfortunately, it is not bug free but I can understand it. It should contain at least one skin which is NOT eye candy. Some users demand functionality rather than something what can impress teenage girls.

Nice attempt with some neat features but in the end its just bloated and buggy. Winrar is still easilly the best compression utility.
