    .rar offers better compression than zip, I would try this out because it claims to betterthan the previous.

    .rar is slower than .zip

    anyway 7 ZIP RULESSSS ANYDAY .... + it is opensource ... + it can decomplress all the major known archive formats (just like WinRAR and WinACE)

    WINRAR rules for me...:)....You can see the advantages yourself when you have winRAR..;)
    You can make .exe files called SFX..wid passwords..and diff. techniques..;)..Man..u can select compression mode..such as-"low/best/...etc..etc"..
    So advantages of RAR are in manifold..:)

    ^ all that is offered in all the compression programs ... there is nothing new in that ...
    WinZip
    WinRAR
    WInACE
    7Zip

    all 'em offer that ...

    in terms of compression it has been found that
    7Zip is better than WinRAR/WinACE is better than WinZip ...

    in terms of speed it is WinZip is better than 7Zip is better than WinACE is better than WinRAR ...

    But WINRAR works for me better than winzip..
    I used to use winzip earlier..but later found it to be a kid's toy..So switched over to WINRAR..Since then WIRAR is working fine for me..!!

    And winrar has another facility of comment viewing..Suppose i comment on a .rar or .zip file..you can simply see the comments on the right side of the scrren..I guess it also has the capacity to show the .nfo files in the comment viewing box..!!

    if it starts supporting RAR then it wont remain free ...

    the problem is taht RAR format is patented ...
    i dojnt have any idea whether Win Zip will ever support RAR ...
