BetterZip is a archive extractor for Mac OS X. BetterZip is useful if you only want a few of the files that are compressed within an archive. It also does compression naturally, including encryption, splitting large archives, and stripping out Mac specific hidden files to make archives more cross-platform. BetterZip makes you able to quickly inspect an archive without first extracting its contents. You can add or extract files via drag-and-drop or delete files from archives. With the click of a button BetterZip can strip Mac specific files and folders, e.g., resource forks or Finder settings, from zip files and tar balls for best compatibility with Windows or Linux systems. BetterZip lets you quickly preview images, PDF, HTML, and text files in a drawer without the need for starting external programs.BetterZip can protect your data with a password and create WinZip® compatible AES-256 encrypted archives. 7-zip and rar archives can also be protected with strong data encryption. Besides the English version BetterZip includes German, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Spanish localizations, each with a complete translation of the documentation.
