I have the 3 main programs installed, which are Winzip, Winrar and Winace. I realise that I can open most files with a single program, but I prefer to use the correct program according to the file format.

ya me too agree winrar is quite better than winzip. and you know sometimes winzip does not open the specific files and asks for some other software. but in winrar there is no difficult i hav faced till today.

back to when I still using win98 and win 98 se I still using winzip, when I upgrade to windows xp, I still using winzip on all my system, but when I upgrade again to winxp service pack 1 I allready change my compresion application to winrar until now, I think winrar quiet good enough, I don't get any trouble at all with it, its compreesion level is a little higher than zip though, and it also capable of working with zip files also, and others compresion format also. and the most common fact is, right now on the internet many many files that we download are packed with rar compresion.

I used Winzip only once and I hate it very much. WinRAR is simple and more effective. Even if we Drag a File over WinRAR archiev it will be added in it. But winzip will popup a dialogue and ask something. BAD and Time Consuming. And winRAR is more Reliable to Transfer. Thanks
