the best? .. i think Winrar is generally accepted more in mainstream.

or if you want a alternative to Winrar i would suggest www.7-zip.org (.7z format) as it's generally better than .rar files as far as cmpression (although it can vary depending on what you compress) and the best part is, it's FREE

Excellent program. I've been illegitimately using an old version for the last 2 years. If only they had a free version. $20 is a lot for something you'd expect to naturally be part of the OS.

I bought it a few years ago, been quite happy with it. Surprised the article doesn't even mention it's best feature, full 7zip support. It's eventually going to replace the proprietary rar format, I have no doubt about it.
