Open Source Spotlight: The Unarchiver
Having consistently seen questions regarding alternatives to Stuffit in forums across the net, we decided to shine our spotlight on one of our favorite free utilities – The Unarchiver. This information is not ground breaking by any means, and can be found across Mac sites, but we want to provide a central place to obtain good information, and The Unarchiver certainly belongs here.
The compression tools which come with OSX can handle a wide array of situations but will on occasion leave you without the ability to open some more exotic archive files. Best of all, its free! The Unarchiver handles a very wide range of files which include Zip, Tar-Gzip, Tar-BZip2, Rar, 7-zip, LhA, Stuffit and many more.
