State of things

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.

The best.

about HaoZip · ·

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.

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.


It's powerful...

It's powerful, for sure. WinRAR like interface makes it easy-to-use.

Much better then PeaZip, 7-Zip archiver, WinRar etc.
Full options.

I just tried both. PeaZip must have improved a lot since this comment (made in 2012) as it is now much nicer to use than HaoZip.
