As a casual user myself (at least when it comes to archive utilities :P ), I've only encountered the RAR, Zip, and 7z formats in everyday use. Those three are, by far, the most common formats around. You might have to extract an ISO every now and then, and perhaps even a tar.gz archive. All of which are supported by both WinRAR and PeaZip. Unless you're a developer or something, you're not going to be seeing anything else. And if you're a developer, you sure don't need to be following any of my advice.

For most people, the main difference between PeaZip and WinRAR is the fact that one is open-source, with a pretty GUI. And the other one is proprietary, and rather ugly.

By default Winrar toolbar is ugly yes but there are many toolbars skins available on the website + you can tweak the registry to use personal icons for extensions. Winrar still has a use when you need to edit a rar without extracting the files. I didn't find an open-source compression utility which is able to do it for now.

Finally found my replacement for my combination of 7zip and Izarc

WinRAR can't extract some archives.
doesn't make a difference wether you're a casual user or not, everybody needs to extract stuff.

It's funny someone would compare Peazip to WinRAR. WinRAR doesn't even support LZMA

Simple enough for my mom, yet based on 7zip and quite technical enough for my uses. Lets you activate file menu items for file splitting, file joining, file shredding, and an easy one to open a cmd prompt in any particular folder you're browsing. Plus its gorgeous looking.. seriously

Is it any good? I thinkI'll give it a try - seems to have a nice GUI.
