maybe its become better, but lately i prefer using one device/piece of software for doing lots of things - my android phone - making calls, browsing the web, playing games, listening to music and many more

ive found KuaiZip, i think it illegally uses winrar source code, but im not sure and it has modern UI, and it can mount all known virtual images, thats why i like it

previously i used PotPlayer with foobar2000 for music and movies, now im forcing myself to like VLC for both things


but what im doing is kinda weird, because today's hard disks have a lot more storage so people dont care if they have some 200MB extra of programs installed

Wow, some of the comments ^^^ make it sound like the icons make the program run slower or killed their cat or something. LOL

Exactly. I would rather have a program run flawlessly then care more about how the icons look.

And yet the default icons still look like they belong to Win 95...

I personally like them. Somehow I associate them with WinRAR, so for me they are a part of WinRAR personality. The interface is very easy to use and the functionality top-notch. This is what matters in the end.

Because this program integrates flawlessly into windows shell/explorer, I never actually start it up. I always access it by right clicking on a file.
