Editors' Review for PeaZip
PeaZip is a great Zip software and Rar extractor, now it supports to open and extract over 180 archive types,including ACE,ISO,RAR,ZIP,7z,etc. It's free and open source.
Though the PeaZip is not as popular as the 7-Zip, WinRAR, or Bandizip, but PeaZip is getting more and more users, one reason is that it is good enough to fit almost all user's needs. It supports all the most popular technologies like 7-Zip,FreeArc, PAQ, UPX,etc, so that it can create almost all popular types of compressed archives and also extract them. Also,PeaZip has some great features like archive management,file management,file search,strong encryption ,portable,etc. So we thought that PeaZip is good enough to solve the problems about create or extract archives.
Another reason maybe that it's completely free. PeaZip is a open-source project, it's driven by the community, so it's free and reliable. And some best tools we know like 7-Zip, Bandizip,etc already released the commercial versions, then the free version is limited in functionality or comes with ads. So more and more users choose the PeaZip as an alternative.
