    Thanks. Personally, it has always been between 7-zip and/or WinRar. I like 7-zip thanks to it being open-source and free price tag but hate the fact it still doesn't make use of ASLR.

    Very interesting test - thanks for sharing!

    I take from the report the feeling that 7-zip is good enough to not warrant learning a new tool for the job :cool:

    Yes, 7-Zip does well, but I've never liked the user interface. I'll stick with HaoZip for now because the interface is more like WinRAR's.

    These days I don't need to archive files that much, so I mostly use it for opening archives. I have also used FreeArc a bit due to its good compression rates, when I needed to compress large accounting company files to be less than 10 meg so I could email them.

    I use 7-zip. Great to see it stands pretty well in the result.:)
