HaoZip Comments

State of things

Comment by Killy
about HaoZip Aug 2016

Version 3.0 was the last version with official English translation. And it was really nice WinRAR clone, with good UI and all required features.
But recently I found that it no longer supports certain RAR archives - age starts to show itself, things keep changing after 2012 (year of 3.0 release).

After version 3.0, developer stopped providing English version. It's still possible to find fan-translated and patched versions, but only if you trust em and like updated UI.

about HaoZip Aug 2015

It has the best stuff of all worlds.

  • Free with no ads or any other crap.
  • Clean installation.
  • Very clean and pretty User Interface.
  • Very Fast.
  • Compatible with all most known formats.
  • Virtual Drive
  • Image browser.
  • Many more stuff.

The only problem I had was downloading it from their website. Slow and hanged a lot.

I used to use IZArc. Abandoned it because of all the crap-ware that was added.

Changed to Haozip. Do not regret it at all.

about HaoZip Jan 2013

I got a system speed slowed down problem. Every time I re-installed my system and used it for a while it got slowed down. Those times I associated file types with HaoZip. But this time I haven't done that, and now my system runs fast. I can't confirm it is HaoZip's problem but just telling everybody to take a notice. That HaoZip version is not new, so I don't know about newer versions HaoZip too.
